“An unusually smart entry in the supernatural cinema genre, Macedonia’s Oscar submission evocatively works its theme of forces beyond the pale, with reflections and shadows taking a primary role in the narrative, along with an erotic sub-current.”

(Joseph Woodard, Independent)

“A visual tale of dramatic substance, with historical depth and contemporary thrust, adroitly told with innovation and élan.”

(Diane Sippl, Cinema Without Borders)

“Shadows’ two very attractive leads are so arresting together that it is truly unearthly.”

(Andrew Sarris, Observer)

“With Shadows, Manchevski seems to be back on track. Dark and moody, but oddly satisfying, Shadows is a film for adults – meaning those with adult sensibilities.”

(J. B. Spins)
