The Day The Sun Fell

Ins Deutsche wechseln DE


«Beautifully intimate and personal, yet it reaches out across the world in terms of the issues that are at hand.»

Anne Thompson, Indiewire

«It is not just a movie about personal experience and about what happened in the past, but it is something that is very relevant today. (…) Every minute that is in that film is part of that film and should be there.»

Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

«It’s very surely directed, there is a certain confidence. It’s quite rear to see that in a first film. And you can already get a sence of what kind of a director is behind this film. And in a documentary it is even more difficult than in a fiction film, because there is so much you cannot control. So that’s definitely very impressive.»

Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
