““Invasion” definitely stays true to its description, but the film is even more extreme than that, since Shahram Mokri wrapped it in an art-house package that also defies the “normal” perception of time and space.” Panos Kotzathanasis - Asian Movie Pulse

“Shahram Mokhri's proposal is bold. On the merits, it is a question of denouncing the paranoia of the security and closed societies, beyond the political metaphor concerning Iran for decades.” Avoir Alire Team - Avoir Alire (French)
