      Justin Chang Los Angeles Times This is unbearably good cinema. Feb 27, 2020 Full Review Jordan Cronk Film Comment Magazine There's no denying the boldness of [I Was at Home, But...]-fractured, elliptical, and highly mannered, the film hardly betrays Schanelec's ideology. Feb 19, 2020 Full Review Sheila O'Malley RogerEbert.com Every element -- camera placement, music, blocking, sound design -- is so deliberate that it pulls you into its vortex, and it makes you submit to its severe rhythms. Rated: 3/4 Feb 14, 2020 Full Review Lawrence Garcia In Review Online [The film is] ... an invitation to dance - not to forget that governing question, but to sublimate it into movement, as if to make one's body feel what one would ask of it. Jun 5, 2021 Full Review Steven Warner In Review Online It becomes clear that Schanelec is commenting on both the contradictory nature of life itself and the duality of man, with the film as a whole serving as the ultimate example. Jun 4, 2021 Full Review Eulàlia Iglesias Fotogramas A splendid Maren Eggert. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 5/5 Oct 9, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
