Film Review  March 5, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...The flagrant one-dimensionality of Annette -- she's so chaste she's actually won an award in Seventeen with an essay on the importance of purity -- grates maddeningly; by the time she finally has it out with Valmont you're ready to slap her silly. Apart from Blair's riotous performance, the only other inspired work comes from the lavish production design by Jon Gary Steele, who surrounds the cast with lush, toney baronial halls and outfits that call to mind a pair of the Valmonts' film predecessors -- Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie's vampiric society bloodsuckers in The Hunger..."

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
This cinematic pop opera is a disorienting, strange experience at first – every word is sung, even the most banal of dialogue. The simple yet sophisticated French film tells the story of two star-crossed lovers, a 16-year-old shopgirl and her gas-station attendant sweetheart, without any apology for the unashamedly romantic heart.

Screens Review  May 20, 2005, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Hearing French schoolchildren titter over this particular plot point in another DVD bonus smacks of Demy's restorationist widow, Agnes Varda, a cinematic jewel in her own right. (Look for Jim Morrison lounging on the film's set in an excerpt from Varda's tantalizing The World of Jacques Demy.) The king's other prize booty is Catherine Deneuve, playing both the dying queen who forces from her mate a death-bed vow to marry only someone as radiant as she, and also the couple's sole offspring..."
