Kind Words:

‘What a moving, surreal film this is. It took me completely by surprise, held on to me and never let go. I was entertained, fascinated and touched by it. The narrative made me care what happened and had happened to this woman. And for that to occur it means someone is completely in control of their craft….This is a clever, unusual film by someone with a lot of talent. A treat.’

- John Ruane, director (DEATH IN BRUNSWICK)
