Critic Reviews for Valerie

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

An accomplished character piece that sustains interest in a conceit nearly as slender as its protagonist.

In a curious way is somewhat interesting.

Neither this picture nor any other I've seen during the past fortnight is good enough for a Best Bet recommendation.
