Washington Post - Unnamed
A delectably naughty experience. This sort of wit and immediacy is extraordinarily rare in a period film.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Pfeiffer reveals an emotional nakedness that's almost shocking. Never has she exposed so much and done it so simply. Who knew she could be this good?
The New York Times - Vincent Canby
Nothing Miss Close has done on the screen before approaches the richness and comic delicacy of her work as the Marquise. [21 Dec 1988, p.C22]
Time - Richard Corliss
An excellent film. [16 Jan 1989, p.64]
Los Angeles Times - Sheila Benson
In addition to its photography, the film's details of costuming (by "The Last Emperor's" James Acheson) and production design (by Stuart Craig of "Gandhi" and "The Mission") are ravishing. [21 Dec 1988, Calendar p.6]
