“An impressive achievement, a piece of storytelling which balances moments of flighty whimsy against deeper existential questions.”  Screen Daily

“Pierre Földes succeeds in a captivating adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s Short Stories.”  – Cineuropa

“Gorgeously drawn. . . Translucent lines and rough crosshatched textures throughout the background art give the film both tactility and a touch of ephemerality.” – BFI/Sight & Sound
