REVIEWS

“Goes against the flashy camera tricks and fashionable gimmicks of 60s directors... a moody, quiet, highly personal expression.”
– Roger Ebert

"An appreciation of Les Biches depends on an appreciation of the director's attitude toward his characters... It is not Sassard looking yearningly at Trintignant and Audran that is at issue here, but rather Chabrol gazing compassionately at the entire spectacle."
– Andrew Sarris

“A languorous exercise in classy eroticism.”
– Pauline Kael
