“It may be a timely film, but it is its timelessness, as well as its depths of compassion, that qualify it as a great one.” – Ryan Gilbey, The Guardian.
“Shocking and enraging, funny and surreal, rapturous and restorative, this is a film of startling intensity and sinuous mood shifts wrapped in a rock-solid coherence of vision.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
