Press on Shadows

Click here to download Shadows press quotes


“Shadows is a stunning and endlessly suspenseful erotic thriller. This mustsee artistry by director Milcho Manchevski leaves a magnetic imprint on the moviegoer”

(Omar P.L. Moore, The Popcorn Reel Film Review)

“‚Call it a ‘ghost story’, but know that it feels more like Bergman or Polanski, or even Shakespeare – Macbeth and Hamlet come to mind. *…+ To live through these moments in this setting allows for an uncanny intimacy – a faceoff with personal fear that leads, strangely enough, to a celebration of life.”

(Diane Sippl, Cinema Without Borders)

“SHADOWS’ style runs between hypnotic and frantic, which will surely set hearts racing. The film is unique in its ability to have a hand in multiple genres.”

(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)
