Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Sylvia Plath meets ‘The Twilight Zone’ in this arresting combination of high-concept sci-fi and philosophical thinkpiece, adapted from a famed 1962 Austrian novel. Leading German actress Martina Gedeck delivers a solo tour-de-force as the single woman whose sojourn in her friends’ Alpine hunting-lodge becomes an unending nightmare when an invisible wall pens her in, and nobody comes to her rescue. If she’s the last woman left on Earth, what gives her life meaning? Documenting her daily survival in a journal provides the beginning of an answer, as this mesmerising, austere and contemplative film provides a rarefied yet utterly immersive viewing experience.
