American Critics

The Los Angeles Times said it's "A granular depiction of trauma, illness and protectiveness disguised as a love story and guided by a pair of intense portrayals." and that "As it plays out, it"?s only a hard road for these swept-up, damaged lovers, whom Klein and his actors treat with blessedly non-exploitative honesty."

A critic from Variety wrote "What might have seemed pro forma on paper overcomes its occasionally studied stylistic tics to become a troubled, anguished love story that neither exaggerates nor soft-pedals the demons on display."

Canadian Critics

The Toronto Star praised the director saying "Klein creates a mood of tension, foreboding and sombre reflection through occasional moments of slo-mo and camera work that blurs reality. His literate script offers no easy resolution, only the faint hope that love can rescue two lost souls."
