Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Its captivating visual storytelling makes it a work of pure cinema."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Chances are you'll see it much more clearly as an experiment that goes on too long."

‑ Greg Quill, Toronto Star
"If Duska had ended after the first twenty minutes Jos Stelling's latest effort would have been hailed as a cinematic masterpiece ..."
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
"Starts well, with playful, warmhearted lensing following the shy protag as he watches his fantasy girl, but soon the characters become a deadly combination of unfunny and moronic, like Mr. Bean without the charm."
‑ Jay Weissberg, Variety
