Critics reviews

There is an extraordinary warmth in the film. Warmth is a motif that comes up in its very first seconds. Jo, in voice-over, reflects on the coldness of winter, the vastness of interior, domestic spaces that could never be properly heated, and on the warmth that existed, nonetheless, between the members of her family.
