  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Autore francese tra i più acclamati, ma discontinuo nei suoi esiti, Francois Ozon questa volta riparte da una pièce teatrale che esalta la forza del racconto ed al contempo la sua ambiguità, in una sorta di seducente messa in scena dei trucchi e delle trappole che ogni narratore dovrebbe saper usare.
  • Marina Antunes @ Row Three
  • Samuel Castro @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: François Ozon vuelve a quedarse a mitad del camino en un interesante thriller sobre el poder de la palabra y la subyugación de la narración
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …joins a handful of clever films where fiction and reality merge, like “Adaptation” or Zoe Kazan’s more recent “Ruby Sparks.” It’s thrilling, funny, smart and hugely entertaining, more satisfying than the director’s breakout film.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: As a black comedy, this never quite catches fire, though there is some mild amusement to be found in its social satire.
  • [New – 9/5] | Frank Ochieng @ Yahoo! Voices Movies
    • Excerpt: Eerily quirky, sardonic and perceptive, In the House settles in on the “teacher-student” dynamic as it probes the relationships of art and writing while floating around realms of seduction.
  • Jonathan Richards @
    • Excerpt: Sex and menace hover perpetually around the edges of this superior psychological thriller from Francois Ozon
  • Cole Smithey @
    • Excerpt: François Ozon’s slow-burn comic thriller is a sensitive observation of a global race-to-the-bottom that is devaluing culture in all of its varied forms.
