The jury of Tampere Film Festival 2018 felt that this film must not be ignored and deserves a special mention. The stillness in the beginning is like the stillness of a volcano before eruption. We know right away by looking at the woman rowing the boat that she is ready to explode if challenged – and the explosion comes and we are all with her. The silent end is magnificent, open ended and full of promise, a mixture of escape and a new beginning.
