The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM - DC

Stun­ning philo­soph­i­cal sci-fi drama from the di­rec­tor of Birth and Sexy Beast con­cern­ing an alien adrift in Glas­gow. The film’s most no­table in­no­va­tion is to send Jo­hans­son about the streets and fol­low her sur­rep­ti­tiously with hid­den cam­eras. The ex­per­i­ment is en­tirely suc­cess­ful. Our fa­mil­iar­ity with the star’s celebrity greatly en­hances the sense of an alien abroad. Mica Levi’s score is su­perb. The de­sign is orig­i­nal. The act­ing is un­canny. In short, a mod­ern mas­ter­piece. 15A cert, Phoenix, Kerry, 108 min
