“Tremendously impressive … casually gorgeous camerawork [sets] the perfect stage on which to play out this compellingly absurdist, increasingly dark narrative of slow-acting liberation.” Jessica Kiang, Variety
“Omar El Zohairy’s darkly humorous debut feature is a film of biting social satire, wry chuckles and unsettling oddity.” Allan Hunter, Screen International
“The film’s slow-burn, dark comedy makes it an impressively mounted outing but it is Feathers’ piercing, unsparing indictment of a nation that needs to be saved from itself that is its most effective weapon.” Poulomi Das, News9 Live
