"Éden is [Kocsis'] formally austere and thematically rich character driven third feature that explores the main preoccupations of our modern world: loneliness and immune hyper-sensitivity. Éva suffers from both. And she's allergic to just about everything, so living in a bubble becomes a fact of life to avoid toxic shock, breathing difficulties and possibly even death. To venture outside her starkly decorated high-rise apartment in Budapest she must don a space suit. (...) The luminous camerawork also captures the silent stillness of the desert where Éva undergoes light therapy in an isolated glass igloo. (...) Éden often echoes the bracing quality and otherworldliness of Tarkovsky, Hadzihalilovic and Béla Tarr." - Filmuforia
