„ This film approaches very close. It shows old men, eyes, mouths in front of a black screen. It deals with the horror of a generation. (…)
The effect is stunning. It seems as if the montage is flaring up, as if it burns. (…)
All haunting is ending here.“
Süddeutsche Zeitung, Marcus Hertneck, 30.8.94
