Skolimowski's technique is impressive: the overlapping narratives are expertly handled, and the points of intersection can be dazzling.Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles TimesApril 14, 2016

An extravagantly pointless exercise in protracting the buildup to some meaningless carnage, garnished with metaphysical pretension so cutesy and vague that it feels actively insulting.Alan Corr RTÉ (Ireland)July 25, 2016
Some people might think this is a brave piece of film making from a true maverick; others will see it as 11 minutes of their lives (repeated over and over from different viewpoints) they'll never get back.Robert Horton HeraldNet (Everett, WA)May 06, 2016

A frenetic, kinetic, but largely insipid speed through the lives of ostensibly random people in modern day Warsaw.Chuck Bowen Slant MagazineApril 04, 2016
Jerzy Skolimowski's formal control over the material is so masterful that the textual particulars are revealed to be beside the point.
