"La femme de l'hôtel clearly bears the mark of a highly personal vision, but in its subversion of traditional cinematic representation of women's reality it has made an important contribution to what Teresa de Lauretis has defined as the project of women's cinema: 'to effect another vision: to construct other objects and subjects of vision, and to formulate the conditions of representability of another social subject'."
