    Press

    A heady, waking-dream sensibility co-exists with a prosaic naturalism in much the same way that the ghosts of those lost in the conflict in Colombia walk among the living in this gentle but affecting drama from Beatriz Seigner.

    Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

    Seigner balances social realism and shivery paranormal activity with arresting, uncontrived ease.

    Guy Lodge, Variety
