The critical consensus

Played out with agonising matter-of-factness against a wintry backdrop of chimneys and tips, it’s a grim, if quietly compelling affair.

****(*)Ali Catterall, Total Film, 21/04/2014

It's short and sharp, but with a big blunt end.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 25/04/2014

What lights up the screen is Nazif's quiet, undemonstrative love for Senada, and hers for him. It is finally very moving.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/04/2014

Danis Tanovic's heart-rending drama-documentary recreates the plight of an impoverished Roma family.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 24/04/2014

A bold step, but it pays off.

****(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 18/05/2014
