One to Another

Based on real events, this erotically charged drama follows the lives and sexual liaisons of five young denizens of a provincial French town -- all connected to vain bisexual musician Pierre (Arthur Dupont). After somebody brutally murders him, his sister Lucie (Lizzie Brochere) -- who's been carrying on an incestuous relationship with Pierre -- gradually discovers the terrible truth behind her sibling's death.

The film doesn't mean anything, but it's beautifully photographed and the cast is blindingly gorgeous and frequently naked. full review

David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle

What sets it apart is all that's so effectively left unsaid. full review

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

If this is art, Cinemax is the Louvre.

Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times

Only the French seem to get away with passing off sensational sex romps as high art, but One to Another is pretty much just trashy -- its murder-mystery conceit a sideshow to the film's primary offering: nubile nudity. full review

Aaron Hillis, Village Voice

Only the French could or would make a movie like this. You'll enjoy it if you turn off your brain and concentrate on the eye candy. full review

V.A. Musetto, New York Post

The confusing time line of Pascal Arnold and Jean-Marc Barr's bizarre tale of sibling romance, murder and obsession is just one of its problems. The others are the romance, the murder and the obsession. full review

Jack Mathews, New York Daily News

The flaw is underscored by the one-bod-fits-all casting that renders everyone indistinguishable, especially when they have their clothes off (which is a good deal of the picture). full review

Jan Stuart, Newsday

Uneven thesping...assorted inanities...and a narrow focus turn the potentially fascinating tale into a bland, perverse round-robin of teen angst. full review

Ronnie Scheib, Variety
