"Pita elaborates this story of incest and murder through a seesawing dynamic of flashbacks, comic vignettes and supernatural interventions... But he and his excellent cast also find moments of tender insight, and it’s through this singular and surprising balance of tone that Pita has established himself as one of his generation’s leading storytellers." ★★★★ The Guardian
