"A perfectly successful film, the alliance of sweetness, frankness, and suffering is superb and subtle; the alternation between poetical text and day-to-day conversation, between figurative images and obscure frames, and in the center a sequence of a broken glass in which a fugitive silhouette is reflected, all this testifies great mastery."

Nicole Brenez | Film Critic
