Critic’s Pick! “Wonderfully discombobulating…Demands and rewards repeat viewings; it’s different, and more entrancing, every time.”
The New York Times

“A symphony of separation and solitude.”
Screen International

“Deliciously ambiguous…[The] Zürchers’ movies are like prisms, capturing the things people do when they think no one’s watching…and when they desperately wish they were.”
Variety

“Thrilling, thrilling cinema. Order and chaos fighting it out at the level of form and content.”
The Film Comment Podcast
