"In Fischer's thrillingly lean 'Styx' Suzanne Wolff's expert amateur sailor Rieke embarks on a solo voyage across 5000 kilometers of open Atlantic, in a tiny, bright white sailboat. And simply watching this one-woman-show of intense physical prowess is so absorbing that it's a double shock when she happens upon an overloaded refugee boat." (Variety) 

"Fischer and Kuenzel here create a documentary reality that simultaneously functions as an allegory about the West's ambivalence toward the refugee crisis." (The Hollywood Reporter)
