"It stood out for me as easily one of the most original and enjoyable pieces of work I'd seen in ages."
- Ben Blaine, Shooting People
"You¡¯ve made this film that flies by with effortless simplicity and continuity, which will most likely be the envy of all independent filmmakers. Well done."
- Mark Brown,
Northern Heights Film Festival
"Of the other comedic offerings, Carlo Ortu's Smile, about an over-zealous neighbourhood watcher, worked best."
