Forgive this film its marvelous moodiness-someone needs to go there once in a while.

Dolan perfectly evokes the violating effect of a stranger's scrutiny and the imponderable depths of a lover's gaze.

Poupaud and Clement recite and smirk and shout the lines at each other, without ever seeming genuinely to care about the issues or the people.

Has the feel of a personal project that got away from Dolan, full of raw, rough-edged drama in desperate need of discipline and refinement.

It's hard to imagine that the prodigiously gifted Dolan is still in his early twenties. This is another work of marvellous maturity and assurance.
