The Hollywood Reporter by

Sustains a pervasive feeling of anxiety and suspense, despite an absence of dramatic conflict or resolution.


Salon by Andrew O'Hehir

This is the weirdest film I've seen all year, or at least the weirdest good film. It's also among the most powerful.


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

Hadzihalilovic succeeds brilliantly at crafting a meaningful enigma that somehow grasps the essence of adolescence, but only grows more mysterious with each revelation.


The New Republic by Stanley Kauffmann

The Oxford English Dictionary says that an allegory is "an extended or continued metaphor." And to think that this definition was coined when a French film called Innocence was still very far in the future! But how aptly this film proves the point.
