"Lo inspects both the faultlines and fringes of the Turkish society and ponders profound philosophical questions concerning humanity."
— Tomris Laffly, Variety
"Through a finely calibrated ebb and flow of insight and emotion, Lo offers a fresh perspective on life in the shadows — the freedom as well as the neglect — building toward an end-credits coda, a song from the heart, that's not to be missed."
— Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
"Following the freewheeling day to day life of dogs living on the streets of Istanbul, the initial novelty and intrigue of this extraordinary documentary broadens further to a profound meditation on how mankind treats our so-called best friends, and one another."
— Matthew Anderson, CineVue
"There’s something strangely beautiful about short filmmaker Elizabeth Lo’s concise, allegorical debut feature documentary, which starts off as a fly-on-the-fur exploration of Istanbul’s stray dog epidemic and becomes a lament about the difficulties of finding somewhere to belong in an increasingly fractured, and fractious, world."
— Nikki Baughan, Screen Daily
