Rated: 4/5 Feb 1, 2023 Full Review Ann Hornaday Washington Post An extraordinary directorial debut — based on actual events — in which form and content fuse to discover a new cinematic language. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 17, 2022 Full Review David Parkinson Radio Times If the film loses potency in straining for such empathetic effect, it remains admirably trenchant. Rated: 3/5 May 20, 2024 Full Review Gisela Savdie El Heraldo The film captivates the viewer from the very beginning, starting with the resemblance between the two sisters, who give the film its name, and the development of the character of Hasna, inspired by a real-life case. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: B Dec 14, 2023 Full Review Matthew Turner VODzilla.co Amer, who co-wrote the script with the film’s cinematographer, Omar Mullick, makes an extremely impressive directorial debut.
