"Enjoyable but underdeveloped sci-fi (...) [It] doesn't follow through on either the physical or thematic possibilities of the conceit"  NEU

Time Out
"Anne Hathaway impresses in this brilliant genre-melting wry comedy from Spaniard Nacho Vigalondo that's part indie character study and part monster movie (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
