Kimber Myers of IndieWire gave the film a grade of B, writing: "While it features characters making unrelatable decisions, this 77-minute film is nonetheless compelling and beautifully constructed, and will be of particular interest for fans of French cinema."[12] Boyd van Hoeij of The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "Acting is low-key but believable throughout, with Mouglalis finally shedding her supermodel looks to show the contradictory and flawed but very human character underneath."[13] Leslie Felperin of Variety called it "slight but watchable".[14]

Cahiers du cinéma named it the seventh best film of 2013.[15]
