Critics reviews

The Woman Next Door is tasteful, passionate, lyrical, sexy, eloquently acted, and haunting, but it won’t give you any new thoughts or feelings, just a few nice embroideries on some old ones. For me, the main ticket of attraction is the sensual face of Fanny Ardant, sufficiently voluptuous at times to make me indifferent to what the rest of the movie is doing, or whether this works or not.
