"Top Ten List for 2014. One of the great films about the nature of love. Brilliantly employs lieder by Mozart and Beethoven - the most telling use of period performance since Straub-Huillet's 1968 CHRONICLE OF ANNA MAGDELENA BACH."
- James Quandt, Artforum
"A satirical yet sensitive study of the 1811 death pact between poet Heinrich von Kleist and Henriette Vogel. Hausner expertly conveys the claustrophobia and inflexibility of this environment by tightly choreographing her characters through carefully composed, sparsely decorated spaces."
- Film Comment
"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
Submitted by Country - Best Foreign Film - Academy Awards®
Nominated - Best Film - Locarno Int'l Film Festival
"Antares, a film that is as much about sex as it is about marriage and relationships and sadness, is the rare film that explores this elusive terrain with clarity and dignity."
- Phillip Kennicott, Washington Post
"There is something eerily calm about this strangely compelling film."
- Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Brilliantly acted and directed!"
- Cliff Doerksen, Time Out Chicago

THE DARK VALLEY
"Visually ravishing! The hills are alive with the sound of gunfire in this alpine revenge drama, a superiour genre piece."
- Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
"A unique visual experience out of the novel, in a film that, stylistically, is not too far removed from classic westerns of old, with a typically placed revenge plot situated within this cinematic landscape."
- Stefan Pape, Hey U Guys!
"A brooding atmosphere of suspicion and menace...[with] a tone of grim foreboding!"
- Jessica Kiang, Indiewire
