Los Angeles Times
One could argue that, in varying degrees, all of the iconoclastic French director's films have dismantled femme-centric fairy tales. But in this, the second of a planned trilogy, she's confronting burnished old folk tales head-on. Sly and playful, it's a beauty. Full Review
Diego Costa
Slant Magazine
Judging from The Sleeping Beauty, and the previous "Bluebeard," the provocations stop with the choice of the material, as the tone and style of these films are jarringly well-behaved. Full Review
Ed Schied
Boxoffice Magazine
The Sleeping Beauty lacks either the dramatic intensity or the sexual frankness that drew attention to her previous films "Fat Girl" and "The Last Mistress." Full Review

New York Daily News
Breillat, seemingly inspired as much by C.S. Lewis and Hans Christian Andersen as by original author Charles Perrault, doesn't really make the most of her subversive premise. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
Breillat, as always, goes her own way, but her impressionistic scenes barely cohere, even at this brief running time. Full Review
