Press Quotes

A sharp twist on the memory-loss psychodrama, Agnieszka Smoczyńska's less kooky follow-up to 'The Lure' is a surprising but rewarding shift in direction.

Guy Lodge, Variety

A satisfying, thought-provoking exploration of the commitment and sacrifice required to be true to yourself.

Allan Hunter, Screen Daily

Its controlled expansiveness of tone, psychology and camera mark its helmer -invaluably aided by writer-star Gabriela Muskala - as a stylist of considerable, unpredictable finesse.

Guy Lodge, Variety

Anchored by finely grained performances, even from now-7-years-old Iwo Rajski as the kid, the work examines with unblinking honesty just how friable the bonds can be not only between spouses, but even between mother and child.

Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

Smoczynska can manoeuvre through delicate, emotional scenes as well as creating an atmosphere that will make the hairs on your neck stand on end.
