The film, although fascinating, is also slightly boring.
May 31, 2020
Accompanied by an insistent, sinister score, its depiction of bohemian excess and depravity in the arts community betrays a conservative streak not unlike that found in slasher flicks.

If Zulawski gets something with his movie is to provoke. The provocation that leads to reflection, an exercise completely prostituted nowadays. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 11, 2017
Zulawski's fluid, roving camera, favoring medium shots and close-ups, and accompanied by Georges Delerue's full-throated score, is so attentive to every pang, twinge, or slightest hint of agony that it seems to expose the characters' every nerve.

Shining through L'Important C'Est D'Aimer is a genuine sense that love enables us to transcend the most degrading experiences.

At once electrifying and eviscerating.

The winner of the very first Best Actress Cesar Award, besting fellow French icons Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Adjani and Delphine Seyrig, was Romy Schneider, who won her prize for her performance in this edgy endeavor.

Zulawski's third feature and his first made in France, is in certain respects among his most restrained. (It may be a good introduction to his work.)

[A] madly flitting butterfly of a film.
