AESTHETICA MAGAZINE REVIEW:
"an intricate film that experiments with its use of narrative and contemplative cinematography, to the sea probes at morality in a harrowing manner. it leaves viewers questioning – “what would I do in that situation” and for this reason it resonates long after the film has finished."
