Steve Lovecraft’s review published on Letterboxd:
Most of movies, for me, are the audio. How an actor speaks, how sounds move with each other, how the soundtrack fits in. This one is just shuffling and ambient sounds. It's about deaf people in the Ukraine. I'm sure a rough place to be, and, considering the setting, characters, and events, it is remarkable engaging. As to whether I would watch this film again, I will do my best to avoid it. It's incredibly depressing. I'm sure it's incredibly realistic, and I wish it weren't. There is absolutely nothing positive about this film, and I'm pretty sure the filmmakers were going for that. Good job everybody, I'm going to go cry in the shower now.
