Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Gradually, Ozon and the actors convince us of the reality of this world and persuade us to watch the film on its own, unforced terms. Nothing much is happening, except life.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 10.07.2010
One of the pleasures of Hideaway (Le Refuge), from Francois Ozon, an erratic talent of satisfying films like Under the Sand and misfires like 8 Women, is its insistence on ambiguity.Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 09.10.2010
Hideaway" is a spellbinding film, and Ozon, who is perhaps best known for the much darker Under the Sand and Swimming Pool ... continues to be an inspiring director of actors.Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, 09.16.2010
Though the psychological layering and thematic ambition of the screenplay do not quite result in the depth intended, Hideaway's unsentimental performances will hook you.Ernest Hardy, Village Voice, 09.07.2010
