Critics :

‘’The film, gorgeously art-directed by Josefin Åsberg and shot by Fredrik Wenzel is engrossing throughout.’’
Torene Svitil,, Janvier 2014
‘‘It is a rather intriguing experience, as indeed we get to witness a personal side to the story that is never really revealed so plainly and with such disarming genuineness.‘‘
Matt Micucci,, 2013
