"[In L'arrache-coeur Mireille] Dansereau employs some of the techniques which made her first film, La vie rêvée, so well loved: the use of fantasy scenes and home movies. She adds an unflinching refusal to carry through with the narrative imperatives which realism usually involves: she offers no false, or easy solutions, no significant closure."
