“Haeusser’s direction is downright sexy....Reminiscent of the Lives of Others, the film moves
with wicked moxy, ebbing and flowing effortlessly through a labyrinthine urban landscape.

But it’s the little touches that make her direction so remarkable. Haeusser has such an innate sense
of emotion, such a mutual devotion to capturing slight changes of posture or tension…phenomenal
moviemaking at any level...If we're all lucky, more will come.”

- MTVU 'Best Film on Campus'


“Absorbing short...Fantastic performances make this a must-see.” - Los Angeles Journal
