Laxe uses weather and color as to suggest a transformation just before complete bitterness, and he expresses, amongst all, a question that goes beyond gilt and resides in the misteries of identity”
– Alonso Díaz de la Vega: El Universal

“Few recent movies have such an amazing begining (…) It is Oliver Laxe’s talent (…) a contemplative cinema, but never redundant. Precise in every sequence, with no self-complacent intentions.”
– Javier Ocaña: Diario El País

«Analiza tanto la naturaleza como la naturaleza humana con la misma fascinación (…) Laxe realiza un estudio de un ecosistema que mantiene un equilibrio frágil y lánguido hasta que interviene un imprudente impulso humano.»

“Oliver Laxe’s third feature studies nature and human nature with equal fascination (…) it’s an aptly democratic study of an ecosystem that exists in languid, fragile balance until reckless human impulse intervenes.”
– Guy Lodge: Variety
