    "Nevia ... is striking for the quiet tenacity of the lead character, who is the camera’s constant focus as she moves around in surroundings which, whilst dilapidated, are also full of dignity."

    "An involving and affecting debut feature that’s shot with expressive naturalism and anchored by impressive acrobat-turned-actor Virginia Apicella. Sombre, thoughtful and moving...."
