“Chouaib and Farahani impressively manage to draw the viewer in, with the specter of death and a thick air of secrecy hanging heavy over the proceedings from the first frame.” Boyd van Hoeij - The Hollywood Reporter

“This trilingual yet not especially talky debut [of Jihane Chouaib] ... seeks profundity in introspective silences.” Peter Debruge - Variety

“A film that is a perfect merger of visual and narrative storytelling, Chouaib’s mature use of the camera and the mise-en-scene form the perfect, yet at times melancholic ode to home and identity.” Alan Mehanna - An-Nahar
