Tampere Film Festival (National Competition 11), Saturday, 7 March 2015
TFF: "A foreign woman in a burqa brings her young son to a Copenhagen police station to file a complaint against her abusive husband, but the translator assigned to her seems unwilling to convey the true meaning of her words. A tense, diamond-hard film about cultural isolation and bureaucratic ignorance."
AA: An intense and urgent drama about "lost in translation" when the female interpreter to the violently abused wife distorts her testimony to the police. The situation escalates to a fatal misunderstanding. The wife finally requests her son Yussef who talks Danish. But even the son fails to translate what the wife is saying. A refined and powerful movie.
