"The film stands as an imposing monument to the memory of a great artist."
- Dan Fainaru, Screen Daily
"Built on a classical narrative structure, Afterimage really puts the emphasis on its remarkable lead actor, Boguslaw Linda, a legendary performer in Poland, who has, in the past, starred in films by the country's greatest directors."
- Dorota Hartwich, Cineuropa
"Afterimage is as elegantly assembled as all of Wajda's work: beautifully lit, tastefully art-directed, and handsomely shot by Pawel Edelman, who was Oscar-nominated for his work on Polanski's The Pianist. "
- Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
"The reliably interesting Emmanuelle Devos brings complexity to this sleek, Chabrol-like story of a mother's revenge mission."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"A mother's haunting grief propels her on an obsessive quest for answers and possible revenge in Moka, a mournful, slow-burning psychological thriller adapted from the 2006 novel by Tatiana de Rosnay. Frederic Mermoud's return to feature films...has a strong affinity with the writing of Patricia Highsmith and the films of Claude Chabrol and should appeal to an audience seeking moral complexity in their thrillers..."
- Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
"A classy and classical psychological thriller."
- Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
"[M]asterful performances. [T]his tale approaches a family's flawed construct with the critical seriousness of Robert Bresson or Fukada's compatriot Nagisa Oshima."
- Maggie Lee, Variety
"[C]ommands attention from start to finish. The film's insights into the isolation evident in the relationships most take for granted â€” marriages, parent-child connections and long-term friendships â€” don't merely hit their targets; they smash them with a sledgehammer."
- Sarah Ward, Screen Dailly
"...deeply involving and uncannily affecting..."
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
"[An] intelligent and universally resonant crowd-pleaser..."
- Alissa Simon, Variety
"**** Hrebejk and Jarchovsy deftly employ humour as a way of mocking and undercutting their anti-heroine while preventing their overall point about power and corruption from becoming preachy. "
- Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Effectively transposing ൔ Angry Men" into the most intense PTA meeting of all time, Jan Hrebejk's "The Teacher" is a sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play..."
- David Ehrlich, Indiewire
