Angela Summereder and cinematographer Hille Sagel work miracles with much movement within very simple frames. Nothing new or against Maria Zechmeister is proven in the film, but a healthy doubt is being cast about the workings of justice as such. Here is a film of strong dramatic impact, deep compassion and high humor, stylistically innovative and should do well not only on the festival circuit but if handled carefully on the open market. (Variety, 1981)
