In 2001 the Guardian critic Philip Norman included it his list of 100 top movies of the 20th century. In his 2003 film The Five Obstructions, Danish director Jørgen Leth describes La Collectionneuse as his favourite work by Rohmer, and he hired one of its stars, Patrick Bauchau, to appear in The Five Obstructions. La Collectionneuse won the Silver Bear Extraordinary Jury Prize at the 17th Berlin International Film Festival.
