‘Small moments are imbued with a sense of spiritual grace, and the entirely mundane is recalibrated as the sublime. In this film, representing the routine becomes a radical act.’ ★★★★★ Matt Turner, Little White Lies

‘It is an ambient study, or mosaic of moments, slices of life with only the most discreet and unemphasised single narrative thread’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
