A sample of reviews from critics across the country.
Matching the strength of these actresses and their personal drama is the film's masterful sense of time and place - the way it makes us feel that this was how it was during four pivotal days in July 1789 as the wheels came off the French monarchy.

Benoît Jacquot's tense, absorbing, pleasurably original look at three days in the life and lies of a doomed monarch.
Benoit Jacquot's engrossing film tells a story we know well, seen from a point of view we may not have considered.
Historical drama set in the early days of the French revolution is intelligent Euro eye candy at its most lavish.
The pleasure of Jacquot's film is in watching various strains of discreet, heated, and deluded passionate attachment performed.
Benoît Jacquot's film is shackled to a blah bourgeois leftism.
A well-observed but emotionally muted costume drama that might well have been titled "My Week With Marie Antoinette."
The story refuses to combust; it's a strangely unsatisfying combination of bloodless observations and unresolved sexuality.
