First reactions::

„Anchored by incandescent perfs from German thesp Franziska Petri and Macedonian actor Dejan Lilic”
„Petri, not well known beyond Germany, is a particular revelation, mesmerizing throughout with her piercing feline eyes and brisk hauteur.”
  → www.variety.com

„Betrayal features a standout performance by German actress Franziska Petri as a cheated and eventually cheating wife whose surface poise is riven by forces of passion she can barely control.”
  → Screen International (www.screendaily.com)

„Trump card in a technically accomplished affair is Franziska Petri's precisely modulated performance in the demanding central role, this striking German actress balancing ice and fire”
  → www.hollywoodreporter.com

„ ‘Izmena’ (Betrayal) is dominated by the eerie beauty of the German actress Franziska Petri”
  → The New York Times (www.nytimes.com)

„Franziska Petri als vom Wahn gewürgte Heldin voll Frustration, Rachedurst und Hochmut ist ein berauschender Anblick.”
   Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

„Aus Petri aber, mit schneeweißer Haut und rotleuchtendem Haar, hat Serebrennikov darin einen Star von der Eleganz und Autorität einer russischen Zarin gemacht.”
  → Süddeutsche Zeitung

„Und Franziska Petri – was ist das für eine tolle Schauspielerin als Femme fatale! Sie ist die erste Anwärterin auf den Coppa Volpi für die beste Darstellerin.”
  → Frankfurter Rundschau

„Die schönste, größte Überraschung in diesem schönen, großen Film ist Franziska Petri. Wenn der deutsche Film schon nicht vorkommt am Lido, ist es doch mehr als tröstend, wenn eine deutsche Schauspielerin in einem anderen Beitrag glänzt. Zumal die Berlinerin im deutschen Film so sträflich unterschätzt und unterfordert wird, hier aber einmal ihr ganzes Potential entdeckt und ausgeschöpft wurde. Diese markante, ätherische Gesicht, das nie weinen kann und doch immerzu schreien mag unter einer fast maskenhaften Beherrschtheit, dieses Gesicht wird man so schnell nicht vergessen. Ein erster echter Löwenanwärter.”
