“A calm exploration of the way the space taken by maternal love can be redefined, and an invitation to the voyage rich in delicate propositions on matters such as distance, human contact and spirituality, studied from the most simple scale. An endearing film at the border between documentary and fiction, and one which hides under its humble appearances a very sharp sense for atmosphere, created by the work of Romanian cinematographer Alex Grigoras and the New Space Music of Brian Eno. - Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa
