“categorizing Atlantic as a windsurfing movie, or even an immigration drama, fails to capture the sensitivity and lyricism that sophomore helmer Jan-Willem van Ewijk and d.p. Jasper Wolf bring to this engaging, generally restrained pic.” Variety - Jay Weissberg

“Gorgeously photographed by cinematographer Jasper Wolf, the film provides a real sense of space and being lost in the great (and wet) wide open, though in terms of character” Hollywood Reporter - Boyd van Hoeij

“Atlantic is a beautiful film with lots of potential” IndieWire - Katie Walsh
