Une oeuvre puissante et tragique, admirablement interprétée sur le thème de la solitude à deux et du lent et long affaissement de tous sentiments amoureux... www.cinefiches.com
A terrific cinematic social milieu study. There are lots of symbolics to find out. An fine, early example of non-linear narrative. Every single line of dialogues and every single images and their arrangement are thoroughly thought-out.
Mean-spirited and not very clever.
An astounding look at a relationship that has outlasted any love either party had for one another!
