“The film is beautifully played, that is, as written, which is almost as if it were music. The camera literally and figuratively never looks down or up at the characters. It faces them straight on, the better to catch some completely unexpected moments of intimacy and humor.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
“Rohmer identified two traits in his films which he hoped he’d mastered: an easy naturalism and a willingness to present the discussion of ideas. My Night at Maud’s offers both in spades… a playful slice of life which has the effortless air of reality and challenges us to think about life afresh.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)
