  • Press: Reuters Agency: “The Romanian cinema triumphs again with top Berlin award”, the Hollywood Reporter: “Luminiţa Gheorghiu shines as a controlling mother who goes into overdrive when her adult son runs over a child.[…] The screenplay is admirably handled, with wicked moments of humor balancing out truly dramatic finale.”, “Luminiţa Gheorghiu`s performance is quite phenomenal”, “a remarkable film backed by a screenplay both dense and precise, which gives a place of honour to extraordinary and sometimes imposing dialogues”, Variety: “the director has an excellent hand in guiding actors.”
