The lovebirds' dialogue has the sophistication of a junior high school romance, and Mr. Schaeffer appears to have pasted his story together from the button-pushing plotlines of other films.
Neil Genzlinger - New York Times
Another sanctimonious dose of talk-therapy cinema.
Aaron Hillis - Village Voice
Ronnie Scheib - Variety
A mixed-up movie about mixed-up people.
V.A. Musetto - New York Post
Like his unlucky-in-love characters, prolific filmmaker Eric Schaeffer keeps trying, to little avail.
Frank Scheck - Hollywood Reporter
Drama about a failed and depressed 'Ugly American' New York writer attempting some kind of regeneration in Paris follows its 'hero' into degeneracy.
Doris Toumarkine - Film Journal International
Wants to be some sort of non-puritan (queer?) version of Lost in Translation, but its screenplay is too wordy to be able to feign inspired originality.
Diego Costa - Slant Magazine
Just another faux-kinky vanity project in which its creator's neuroses are placed on an undeserved pedestal.
Nick Schager - Time Out
A remarkably honest and sometimes rather grim look at the dark side of love and sex.
Rich Cline - Shadows on the Wall
