  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Ciascuno recita la sua parte di fronte al destino, senza comprendere sino in fondo il ruolo assegnatogli, ma continuando a perpetuare paure, speranze e rapporti di forza, come in balia degli eventi. Ed allora l’unica cosa che li accomuna è l’amarezza della sconfitta. La sua trasversalità.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @
    • Excerpt: A tour de force performance by Luminita Gheorghiu as a controlling mother trying to blast her way back into the life of her thirty-something son.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Gheorghiu, who was the essence of compassion in “Lazarescu,” creates one of the most complex monster mothers in cinema and Netzer’s ambiguous, climatic finale unseats expectations, leaving us to ponder whether maternal love or matriarchal ego is at play.
  • [New – 6/12/14] | Carlos del Río @ El rincón de Carlos del Río [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Madre e hijo tiene ideas y situaciones muy buenas (algunas reflexiones sobre las relaciones entre padres e hijos, o la corrupción, y algún momento tenso) y a una actriz excelente, pero también tiene un guión bastante mejorable y aburrimiento en cantidades industriales.
  • Glenn Lovell @
    • Excerpt: both acerbic character study and understated indictment of Romania’s justice system and inner circle who feel they’re above the law … the great Gheorghiu brings new depth to the stock manipulative mother.
