"Hausner reveals her strongest work yet, a droll, romantic exploration of sorts that manages to expertly blend her unique tone with exquisite digital compositions."
- Nicolas Bell, Ioncinema
Nominated - Best Film - Locarno Int'l Film Festival

"Brilliantly acted and directed!"
- Cliff Doerksen, Time Out Chicago

- Pat Nevers, KinoCritics.com
"[T]he film EGON SCHIELE ? DEATH AND THE MAIDEN celebrates the exceptional artist with wonderful cinematography (Carsten Thiele gets to quite literally paint with light) under the direction of Dieter Berner. Every detail in the film is lovingly taken care of, every tiny role cast to perfection (for instance with Nina Proll as a Prater entertainer)."
- Elisabeth Schabus, Ristretto.tv
SISSI: THE YOUNG EMPRESS
"**** As in the first "Sissi" movie (1955), the viewer is treated to the splendor of the Austrian court life. One beautiful dress after another beautiful costume is interspersed with rich interiors. [I]rresistible romance..."
