    Mélanie Thierry, the ethereal protagonist, embraces a film that fits her perfectly. She manages to breathe life, with sincerity, into emotions that are not normally part of the characters she plays: pragmatic and devoted to a grandiose and capricious nature.

    Giorgia Del Don, Cineuropa

    A nice parallel between mankind’s inability to control the natural world and human fallibility
