A skillful blend of fire and ice that subtly conveys the emotional extremes fraught in the relationship. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Talky, emphatically unsteamy psychological drama. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Predicated as it is on Huppert's pensive, provocative blankness, the action moves a bit slowly, although, as is often the case with Jacquot, events make more sense after the movie is over. Full Review
James Berardinelli
This is a film to be enjoyed on a psychological level for its keen understanding of the contradictory impulses that drive sexual and social intercourse. Full Review
Joshua Klein
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Unfortunately, contrary to the provocative title, the results are not terribly interesting. While the acting is excellent and the filmmaking exquisite, The School Of Flesh itself is yet another dry example of l'amour fou. Full Review
