"The well-chosen cast, led by Maltman's assured, sexy Juan, truly look and sound great."
"Kasper Holten takes Mozart’s opera to the edge… Maltman has an animal charm that mesmerises the camera, and he sings wonderfully…Elizabeth Futral’s Elvira is a poignant figure with real vocal class; Katija Dragojevic makes a seductive minx of Zerlina…Maria Bengtsson is a sassy Anna, playing her men off with cool, calculating sexuality…Holten’s film is darkly enjoyable romp – a thriller that explores some of the enduring themes of Mozart’s masterpiece through a boldly contemporary cinematic lens."
"Racy, glamorous, colloquial, gripping, full of risk…certain to entice anyone with a taste for bold adventure. Given his (Kasper Holten) deep knowledge and love of opera, you know that whatever he does you're in safe hands."
