JURY'S VERDICT.


”Natasa Stork is an intoxicating and enigmatic presence in the film, displaying remarkable aplomb for an actor taking on her first lead role in a feature film. Her elegance and sense of mystery underscore the film’s noirish elements, as she creates a striking and layered character which attests to her great potential as an actor.”
