  1. FISCHER's rating of the film A Very Private Affair

    Excellente analyse-spectacle sur le thème du vedettariat, correctement servie par le mythe Bardot, et ses corollaires exhibitionniste et fétichiste... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film A Very Private Affair

    As with many French New Wave films, I spent much of the running time going back and forth on whether I admired or was annoyed by it. It certainly has a unique style - with it's narration and disjointed storytelling. But the core of the film is hollow, Brigitte Bardot and Marcello Mastroianni develop zero chemistry. Stylish and Interesting, but unsatisfying.

  5. ophulsian__'s rating of the film A Very Private Affair

    It was frustrating to see the collaboration between one of my favorite directors and my favorite actor fall as flat as this one did. However, the print I watched was horribly dubbed into English, so I look forward to revisiting this with the original French; until then, 2 stars from me. Bad chemistry between Mastroianni and Bardot, but the last 30 minutes or so in Italy was beautifully shot and worth watching.
