«A gripping, intelligent psychodrama»
 
«Kreutzer and her predominantly female team have created a story both knottily specific and usefully general inits understanding that for many women, an ultimately untenable level of watchful self-control is the price of ambition, as inescapable and treacherous as the uneven ground beneath our feet.»
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety


«There’s a discourse going on about family and memory, about what we lose if we turn ourselves into work machines that leeches subtly into the fabric of Kreutzer’s psycho-drama, buoyed by a fine use of setting, camera focus and color.»
 
Lee Marshal, Screen International

 
 
«Kreutzer, making a leap up in scope and accomplishment from 2016’s generational snapshot “We Used to Be Cool,” approaches her potentially sensationalist storyline with level-headed realism and her interest in exploring schizophrenia itself. This embrace of messy, compromised ambivalence over cathartic narrative revelation may frustrate those looking for a more full-throated thriller denouement, but it gives Kreutzer’s film a depth of insight that is rare in the cinematic treatment of this most misunderstood of diseases.»

«An impressively controlled feature about the messy nature of contemporary life.»
