"In this story of an unmarried couple (...) objects, bodies, and sensory details take precedence over conventional dramaturgy. (...) Almost imperceptibly, Escobar expands [a woman's] unspoken but deeply felt struggle into a comment on the patriarchal structures that favour obligation over independence, and which continue to threaten women in unique, often tragic, ways." - Film Comment
