«Das Familiendrama um Scheitern und Zusammenhalt einer kleinen iranischen Familie ist unaufdringlich inszeniert und natürlich gespielt, niemals so schwerwiegend und drastisch, wie es seine Themen hergeben würden und deswegen auch niemals nur hoffnungslos erdrückend.» riecks-filmkritiken.de

«Mit neo-realistischer Poesie und eindrucksvollem Schauspiel zeigt der raue Kinderfilm den verheerenden Einfluss geringfügiger Erschütterungen auf Menschen, deren Existenz ein ständiger finanzieller Balanceakt ist.» moviebreak.de
