"A moving film about a topic that people would rather suppress: illness and death. The film frees itself from this burden and becomes an ode to life and the joy of living. Both the lead actor and the supporting roles delivered exceptional performances under the clear, precise and calculated directions of a brilliant director. He tells a moving story of an ill young man with ease and authenticity, without conceding the feel of the time period. The depiction of the 1930s and the political conflict happening then was handled with sensitivity and without any inclination to lecture. 135 touching minutes that fly by. A German producer who managed to muster up the courage to participate in a project that tells an authentic story taking place in Europe with emotion but without emotionalism."

"This year's winner of the Norwegian Film Critics Award in Haugesund is as wise as it is surprising and funny. It tells the story of a father and daughter, and the humour springs from the silent dialogue between them as they struggle to meet each other's gaze. The actress Sandra Hüller's suggestive body language is a study in comical low-key acting in relation to her opponent Peter Simonischek. The director is a sharp but at the same time patient observer, with a deep love for the protagonists, inviting the audience to participate in each and every scene. This winner is something as rare as a comedy with deep resonance and great re-watch value."
