“Palo’s film has a unique and accessible storyline and engaging characters; as it makes its way onto the festival circuit, it would be a great pick up for distributors or streaming services alike.” … Ten Seconds From Now

“Emma Peeters certainly isn’t the first comedy to broach the sensitive subject of suicide. Nonetheless, it manages to find its own distinctive, simultaneously quirky and non-patronising voice in this particular corner of the great wide cinematic universe.” … Cinema’s Fringes
