"Gainsbourg's lyrics [as sung by France Gall] obviously have nothing to do with the worldview expressed by other teenage vocalists of the time; of course the world [of those vocalists] has its charms, but it has not a single atom of depth. In the lyrics of Gainsbourg's songs in general, and "Laisse tomber les filles" in particular, there is a startling lucidity coupled with a refusal to be taken in by "the great farce of love", defined in terms of "never" and "always". But, with "Laisse tomber les filles", we are not presented with a male narrator of thirty or thirty-five years, but rather a teenager." —Gilles Verlant, Gainsbourg

"Unfortunately, compared with Rohmer's earlier work, in particular the series known as 'Six Moral Tales,' The Romance of Astrea and Celadon has little to say about eros that's still relevant. It's a film so embarrassingly quaint it's crying out for a parody called Not Another Medieval Movie."
