Film reviews: 
- "...this is a film about transition, no middle, no end, just incidents, repercussions...this is subtle work" (Andrew Robertson - http://www.eyeforfilm.co.uk/reviews.php?id=9636)- "...it is a movie, not about tragedy, but about contradictions and ambiguity, about hope and disappointment, about the courage to take risks. (...) There is no feeling of satisfaction at the end of the film, only the feeling that we have seen some good and some bad in the lives of ordinary people". William L. Blizek (The Journal of Religion and Film)
