"A true WTF?! experience. Now that you can find Je T’Aime, it is duly worth a look, at least for fans of bizarre cinematic curios."
"One of the most powerful and stripped down messages about the gay experience that the Western world would see for a couple decades. All three of the leads are fantastic and the sets, costumes and photography are as real as it gets. Check out this tasteless, and timeless, work of weapons grade angst and judge for yourself."
- Ron Wilkinson, It's Just Movies
"[Has] a sweet sadness, courtesy of Birkin’s performance, that gives the film a surprising depth. Gainsbourg wrote, directed and scored Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus, and his talent for the visual rivals his musical ability. Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus is packed with masterfully composed shots that combine to create a feast for the eyes. (That the musical score is also a feast for the ears should go without saying.) It’s another fitting example of what made Serge Gainsbourg such a unique and, yes, controversial talent."
- Lee Jutton, Film Inquiry
"Exploring gender, identity and sexual attraction, Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus is a romance film truly unlike anything made before or since. Paired with photographer Willy Kurant, Gainsbourg’s direction is almost absurd in its level of accomplishment. Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus is an erotic thriller truly without compare. Driven by two incredible lead performances and a director in complete control of his art, Gainsbourg’s debut is one not to be missed, even now 43 years later."
- Joshua Brunstig, Criterion Cast
