Village Voice by
A studied, overwrought look into Personal Crisis and Redemption.
Masterfully paced and constructed, and the performances are memorable.
New York Daily News by
If you're going to put us through hell, you'd better make it worth our while. Though Daybreak boasts a couple of minor insights and a compelling performance from Pernilla August, only the masochistically inclined will consider them sufficient reward.
TV Guide Magazine by
Runge's coolly photographed, intricately plotted feature is always interesting in its execution, but disappointingly pat in its resolution.
The Hollywood Reporter by
The characters are so over-the-top with emotional pain -- that they are hardly credible as characters.
The A.V. Club by
It maintains a strong enough sense of squirmy humanity that its characters' epiphanies and emotional growth feel both hard-earned and richly deserved.
Entertainment Weekly by
The snappish domestic infighting is effectively staged, yet beneath its ''raw'' atmosphere Daybreak traffics in pop-sociological clichés.
The New York Times by
If Daybreak weren't so powerfully acted, its accumulating anguish would be too much to bear. As it is, all three couples, especially Knut and Mona, verge on caricature.
