“..this historical psychodrama serves best as a Grimm-style cautionary tale for backpacking kids..”
by [Globe and Mail]
“..this dose of arthouse angst with a gothic garnish features an appropriate culture-clash of acting styles and some confrontational set pieces, but falls short of delivering on its challenging ambitions..”
by Russell Edwards [Variety]
3 of 5

“..it moves along like a thriller, which is a neat trick since the actual narrative is episodic and without any conventional suspense..”
by Peter Galvin [SBS Australia]
“..if the Sydney Festival audience were hoping for an even slightly hopeful ending they were to be disappointed..”
by Frank Hatherley [Screen International]
“..a premature requiem for Europe..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
