A teeth-chattering culmination of Matteo Garrone's darkest themes.

TimeOut (London)


The overall feel is of the kind of Aesop's fable Scorsese would tell his kids.

Variety (USA)


I might have bought what he's doing in a different film, but the one that Garrone has made strains too hard to have it both ways.

Empire (UK)


Garrone proves once again that even the lowest-rung southern Italian gangster can't afford a shred of human decency.

The Times (UK)


It's a strange and sad piece of work, beautifully played by its central odd couple, that will linger in your memory like a howl on the wind.
