"Human beings can be really complicated. And thankfully, there are filmmakers around like Claire Denis who make films such as Both Sides of the Blade to remind us of that complexity." - Josh Kupecki, Austin Chronicle

"Claire Denis and Juliette Binoche, who have now made three films together, are a match made in a gloriously idiosyncratic heaven." - Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

TOP CRITIC

"It’s one of the best movies of the year, if not the best. It’s simply too good to miss." - Alison Lanier, Pajiba

In this incredible film, Denis forces us to ask if romantic love is simply an idealization of human perfection. It’s a scary thought." - Chad Byrnes, LA Weekly/Village Voice

"No living director so evocatively photographs a tangle of limbs, or is as adept at capturing the electric charge of two people sharing a small physical space." - Sean Burns, The ARTery
