Panos Kotzathanasis Asian Movie Pulse Despite the fact that it lacks tension, is a bit too long, and has a rather unlikeable protagonist, emerges as a very interesting film, with the frustration the viewer will feel for Kanta’s self-destructive behavior carrying it from beginning to end.

Audience Member The wait for the possible redemption of the lead maintains a tangible possibility throughout. Surprising, compelling and not all together satisfying.
