Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What seems at first an almost mundane affair becomes a devastating, unsentimental portrait of quiet desperation"
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Unfortunately, director Virginia Gilbert doesn't trust us to handle the chill winds and opts for something that has no temperature at all."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"As dull as a dreary daydream."
‑ James Mottram, Total Film
"The dialogue and situations simply never feel authentic. The younger characters are poorly developed and hollow."
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
"Rutherford does lovely things with the Provenšal light, but Fox is too much of a cipher to care about."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Guardian
"Adroit performances abound in this ex-pat tale. Archipelago DP Ed Rutherford helps add to the Joanna Hogg-y feel, but this lacks the disquieting insights of Hogg's work."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
"Gilbert's full length debut isn't a complete shambles but where passion and tumult should exist, there is only a misguided intent to be found."
‑ Alan Laidlaw, The List
"A mood piece on socially inappropriate lust with moments of real drama."
‑ Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
