Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Annette K. Olesen's women's prison drama, like so many Scandinavian films, is heavily shadowed by the titanic influence of Ingmar Bergman."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"In Your Hands means to convey the divinity of human interaction."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Considering 2005's line-up of truly overwhelming blockbusters, it's refreshing to know that films like In Your Hands are still being released."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
"Thoughtful, gripping, introspective filmmaking with a strong sense of character and story."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"It's unusual to see issues of faith and religious belief dealt with so engagingly on screen and Olesen's direction ensures that your attention is held from the start."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"There seems little point to the Dogme trappings...if the work is going to veer into such hyperbolic, melodramatic territory in its plot."
‑ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
