...Coppola has created a film more about mood than substance, evoking the girls' sexual awakening with rich hues of yellow, gold and red and stunning visuals (...) complemented perfectly by a dreamily ethereal score by the French band Air.
Beautifully shot and acted, it creates a disturbingly erotic atmosphere that more than compensates for the plot's thinness.
...transformed the material into something intriguingly eerie: a morbid teen movie for melancholy adults.
Tragic, haunting, and sometimes darkly comedic, this movie leaves a strong impression in its telling of a story about the destruction of innocence.
