Ratings & Reviews

  1. captainfez's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    If the relationship was as resolutely beige as the film it's no wonder they broke up.

  2. Renton47's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    The affair unfurls like a thriller; the true nature of passion seems to be rooted not in unavailability but various layers of control. The way the pathology gradually reveals itself, deep violence & repression in an otherwise modest form of a bougie fling, culminating not in the ultimate release but the truly shocking single take that moves from stairs to window. Fairly impressive in its unsettling composure.

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    You can sense how Truffaut might regard Hitchcock films as studies of men and women, because Woman Next Door is essentially a relationship presented as a thriller, teasing out details from the past that make you wonder which protagonist is the real threat to the other—or is it that "love" makes more sense as a social contract than an emotion? It builds as it goes; Almodovar must have studied this one closely.

  4. Ben Nash's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    The best narrative film of all time.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Histoire et décors bourgeois sans réelle envergure. Sans aucune qualité cinématographique particulière, cette oeuvre correcte n'atteint jamais la folie amoureuse d'un Zulawski ou d'un Almodovar. Néanmoins, il reste une excellente prestation de Gérard Depardieu qui sauve le film de l'engourdissement... www.cinefiches.com

  7. Ethan's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Truffaut goes Hitchcock in this sexy, psychological thriller with the badass Gerard Depardieu and the lovely Fanny Ardant.

  8. NicoIlGermanico's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

  9. Myles's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    The perfect melding of French New Wave sensibilities with popular tastes. A dream of a movie. Makes infidelity look like fun until it's tragic.

  10. Cyril Schreiber's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

  11. BernardoLopes's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Classic Shakespearean narrative, where this old love between two neighbours becomes life and death. A great Ardant and a decent Depardieu are responsible for the exciting conflict that emerges. Not the best example of Truffaut's virtuosity.

  12. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    A new low in Truffaut's filmography. The first third was decent especially in it's camera work, but it doesn't last.The main issue here is that the film TALKS more about the suffering and grief within these characters than actually SHOWING them. The end result feels like something that fails to capture the magic of old Hollywood melodramas. It also feels like a major retread of Truffaut's much earlier The Soft Skin.

  13. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Lavoro minore di Truffaut,che mostra la consueta eleganza ma sceglie una storia quasi normale,di una passione morbosa che inevitabilmente sfocia nel dramma.Si punta molto sul carisma dei due protagonisti,con un Gerard bellissimo e magrissimo,e il resto dei personaggi passa abbastanza in secondo piano,così come le scene che quasi mai inchiodano alla poltrona.

  14. Joe Hackman's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    A good, riveting film from Truffaut.

  15. hazal ilbay's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    « Ni avec toi, ni sans toi. »

  16. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Truffaut and the actors took a dime store romance novel/daytime soap opera plot and made it actually dramatically compelling.

  17. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Un melodrama romántico que oscila entre la sobriedad y el arrebato. Retrata la pasión amorosa de dos personajes complejos e inestables. Después de Los 400 Golpes, la considero mi película favorita de Truffaut.

  18. FRANCOIS ANDRE's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

  19. soiwaswrong's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    That's it?? Is this really a Truffaut film?? It is not exceptional and it doesn't have any impact unlike his other works... It should have been a great film but it isn't...

  20. mondotempesta's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

  21. Lorna Singh's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    Meant to be a passionate story of doomed love but did not have much impact.A theme that's been done before with more character development. How could there be no chemistry between Ardant and a young,handsome Depardieu?

  22. pedro eira's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    bastante simples -com um final apaixonadamente inesperado !

  23. Rafael Feitosa's rating of the film The Woman Next Door

    a sensible and delicate work of direction; a masterful script
