Los Angeles Times
It's tempting to call Elles some kind of thinking-person's sex movie, but it's more about thinking and about sex (and thinking about sex) and is far more likely to encourage awkward, emphatic conversation than post-show friskiness. Full Review

The Guardian
Binoche rises above the lubricious material by giving a thoroughly detailed and committed performance as the journalist. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Titillation and tentative stabs at gender studies do not a cogent cri de coeur make. It's simply a provocation that's all hopped up with nowhere to go. Full Review
David Hughes
Another bravura performance from Juliette Binoche glosses over the flaws in a soft-focused glimpse at the seamier side of student life. Full Review
Jesse Cataldo
Slant Magazine
The film is ultimately draining because of the way it handles Anne, stranding a potentially dynamic character in two dueling scenarios, both of which are drab and unsurprising. Full Review
