Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The brave thing is how Goran Paskaljevic, the director and (with Genc Permeti) writer, chooses to end the film: short of either a happy ending or a tragic one, in the same sort of limbo that this part of the world seems to inhabit perpetually."

‑ John P. McCarthy, Boxoffice Magazine
