Critics reviews

This fiction debut will doubtless remain one of the memorably genuine and upsetting films about the true nature of war. Facing the unspeakable matters of human humiliation, naked to the bones – however, there is nothing to be seen here about the atrocity of violence which afflicts thousands and thousands of people, let’s name them immediately: women – it is harrowing, shaking. Its emotional power, thanks to an unadorned simplicity, is profoundly far-reaching.
