Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"reaches for palpable psychosis but, in the end, achieves only meandering dread."
‑ Chris Cabin,
"A calm, quiet performance from Ulrich Thomsen initially seems too restrained, but Levring and his star prove they know exactly what they are doing in this uniquely startling character study."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"...remains curiously uninvolving for the bulk of its running time."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Couple the deft writing, direction and superb acting, especially Ulrich Thomsen, with the lush, beautiful photography (by Jens Schlosser) and you get an above average study..."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"The latest from the Dogma cine-factory is notable for director Kristian Levring's visual suggestion of madness."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"The kind of concept Alfred Hitchcock would have loved ... a hauntingly effective little film."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
"A dark thriller that doesn't completely come together but Thomsen's excellent performance keeps it from falling apart and fans of left-of-center suspense films should take a look."
‑ Brian Tallerico,
