"Radu, an aspiring Romanian journalist working as a go-between for a foreign outlet finds himself on ethically questionable turf as he pursues access to a local girl rescued from an international sex-trafficking ring. Claudia and Adrian Silisteanu's astute screenplay unfolds with few predictable notes, providing some striking sequences. Adrian Sitaru's fourth theatrical feature is finely judged in its naturalistic portrayal of a fast-moving narrative that feels almost random as it proceeds, yet inevitable at its close. The packaging is first-rate, with the docudrama feel underlined by both fine widescreen imagery by DOP Adrian Silisteanu and a lack of musical scoring." (Variety)
