Press Quotes

There’s intriguing visual play on the theme of heaven and hell, with the Missolonghi lagoon bringing a flavour of US thriller.

Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily

Scenes of Elisabeth's dreams, which overlap and mix with those of Rita's, with their biblical imagery and unique visual style, transcend the film's primary themes and add a mystical layer.
