Critic Reviews of "The New Girlfriend"Tom Long Detroit NewsOctober 23, 2015
A swirl of gender confusion, "The New Girlfriend" tosses all the he/she/we question marks it can find in a tale of contemporary confused sexuality.Michael Phillips Chicago TribuneSeptember 24, 2015
It's less than it should've been, and a little mild. But Ozon makes it glide with confidence, in or out of heels.J. R. Jones Chicago ReaderSeptember 24, 2015
Duris in drag looks like a refugee from the New York Dolls, but his character aspires to nothing more than life as a bourgeois, pearl-clad mom.Rex Reed New York ObserverSeptember 24, 2015
The New Girlfriend is a funny, delicate, subtly flavored dish deliciously prepared by François Ozon - idiosyncratic and unforgettable.Peter Sobczynski RogerEbert.comSeptember 18, 2015
A wildly entertaining work, one that manages to be simultaneously funny, touching, slightly unnerving and undeniably sexy to behold, regardless of where your predilections may lie.Gary Goldstein Los Angeles TimesSeptember 17, 2015
Although at times amorphously told and genre non-specific - Dark comedy? Soapy drama? DePalma-esque thriller? - the film holds interest as it often defies expectation and juggles its bold, complex emotions.Dee O'Donoghue Film Ireland MagazineMay 12, 2016
While there is occasional delight of artful satire, fanciful farce, psychological undercurrent and political breadth, it soon becomes evident, as the intricate subplots and subtexts unfold, Ozon has rather overstretched himself again.Jason Bailey FlavorwireMay 03, 2016
Ozon, perhaps not entirely purposely, addresses the very timely issue of trans and non-binary gender identity, yet he does it within the framework of his usual style and preoccupations - and shortchanges neither.Sean Axmaker Seanax.comApril 10, 2016
t's tempting to call this film a dark comedy-it is after all based on a novel by author Ruth Rendell-but for all the wit (and there is plenty) there is very little darkness in this playful psychological drama.Peter Canavese Groucho ReviewsJanuary 26, 2016
A strong thematic undercurrent pits bourgeois social conventions against authentic self-definition and ultimate freedom to live without shame or undue social limitations.Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 09, 2016
...an intelligent investigation of hearts that don't know quite what they want.David 'Mad Dog' Bradley Rip It UpDecember 21, 2015
Arguably reminiscent of 'camp' Ozon entries like Angel and 8 Women, this has good enough work from Duris, but is truly saved by the lovely and lively Demoustier.
