"Though some may come for the murder mystery, it’s Triet’s way of using that genre to get at deeper notions of love turning to hate, and tiny marital fissures that turn into chasms, that really makes this something close to an antiromantic masterpiece." — David Fear, Rolling Stone
"The acting keeps us invested throughout while Simon Beaufils’ shadowy cinematography expresses the chill of a relationship." — Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News
"It has both suspense and intellectual ambition; plot revelations don’t just send the story in new directions, they expand the film’s cultural scope." — Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
