Press Quotes

A Colony showcases an emotional sensitivity and cultural specificity that gives it a strong individual identity, (...), handled with a quiet dignity by both writer/director De Celles and her accomplished young star Emilie Bierre.

The excellent camerawork and acting made us feel like we were right there in the middle of the action and let us laugh and cry.
