“Refrigerated and mysterious, uncompromising, uningratiating; an artefact in the highest auteur register, but a film that creeps up on you – from behind.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Joanna Hogg paints a precise picture of a woman trying to develop her own artistic vision while caught in the slipstream of a toxic relationship. An understated, exquisite gem of a film.” – Empire Magazine
