“​​A witty subversion of biopic and costume-drama clichés” - Variety

“Some will say this is the secret royal love child of Pablo Larraín’s Spencer and Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, but it’s better than them both” - Cineuropa

“Krieps gives an exhilaratingly fierce, uningratiating performance” - The Guardian

“Marie Kreutzer's Un Certain Regard offering is part revisionism, part correction, and an entirely wonderful showing for star Krieps” - Indiewire

“Krieps is the force that keeps things moving, and the audience engaged” - Vanity Fair

“Krieps is terrific in a role which depicts Elisabeth as both a victim of her gilded cage circumstances and a chain-smoking self-absorbed uber-bitch” - Screen Daily

“Kreutzer builds up an episodic but compelling portrait of a disaffected woman, but one with enough stoic wisdom to know that since she bought the ticket she might as well stay on the ride as long as she can” - Hollywood Reporter
