"A calculated and formally precise film, a journey of exaggerated emotions." - Wolfgang Jacobsen

"The Rheingold Express becomes the train of life and lets slowness meet speed, puts them side by side. The world races by and death comes slowly. The Rhine myths reflect the inner world and the film becomes more and more a journey to the inner self, whose hypnotic power one can hardly escape." - Berlinale
