 “A film like this should be celebrated and held up as an example of the best kind of work, even while it fits no trend.” Robert Greene Sight&Sound Magazine

“Back to the camera work and the editing that a couple of times lifts the observations to pure poetry, where the fighters movements are being set in slow motion. Like a ballet.” 
Tue Steen Müller, Filmkommentaren

“This is one of the best vérité films I have seen in years and will break down the barriers between documentary and narrative works.” 
Teddy Grouya, Festival Director, AMDOCS Film Festival

“…magnificent images by Nicolas Wadimoff, photography by Joseph Areddy, who design the contours of his athletic body in a constant coming-and-going of chiaroscuro.”
Georgia Del Don, Cineuropa
