„A triumph of all things cinematic: writing, acting, cinematography and editing. At the center of the film was the performance by Stefka Yanorova a mother angry and yet filled with love. The entire cast was brilliant even the exhusband’s voice on the phone run true. It was honest and interesting and always surprising because the film has emotional depth and relevance to us all. It was cinema in its purest form.“
