"A sharply crafted drama that has elements of noirish suspense."
Godfrey Chesire - ROGEREBERT.COM

"It's impressive that Alami can put all this across - romance, suspense and, in the moving final act, a kind of tragedy - and maintain the movie's nimbleness. But he's a natural storyteller."
Wesley Morris - NEW YORK TIMES

"Remarkably adept in balancing audience sympathies and bold in its refusal to choose the most easily justified routes for its characters, THE CHARMER is a powerful piece of cinema. "
Jennie Kermode - EYE FOR FILM
