"A delicacy, a passionate and compassionate study of erotica."
- Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News
"It is possibly the best-known erotic film of modern times, perhaps the best."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"A wise, enormously enjoyable film about the power of fantasy -- a toast to the importance of dreams."
- Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
