”Rarely seen this kind of raw, low-key, psychological thriller in Finnish cinema accompanied with original compiled soundtrack that shows vision in that area as well. Leea Klemola’s performance is one of the very greatest Finnish cinema has to offer. All the violence behind the surface makes me think of David Lynch (- -). There is only vague explanations for Eevi’s (Klemola) behaviour, but that is one of the things which makes it so intriguing: how can she be so evil yet in a way character we can somehow ’symphatize’.” – Letterboxd
