Reviews

"Acting in her native German language, she delivers a career-high performance as the courageous, emotional and unforgiving survivor Katja that should easily put her in the running for an acting prize at Cannes." — Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"Akin holds nothing back, and Kruger, starring in a German film for the first time in her career, brings the grief and anger and pain to life — never overdoing any of it, yet refusing to submerge it." — Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
