There's an air of prefab provocation about the whole thing, and viewers should know that the director has a penchant for squirm-inducing images, not all of them strictly necessary.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A pretty daring -- and disconcerting -- depiction of adolescent sexuality.

Moonlight is a disturbing and daring thriller with an exceptional performance by 13-year-old Laurien Van den Broeck.

A wild dream that spins into a nightmare, Moonlight isn't quite as provocative as it aims to be.

Not only is the candid (but never prurient) treatment of early-teen sexuality and drug use too hot to handle, but the narrative blend of fairy-tale wonder and nightmare logic feels sui generis.

The situation compels you to keep watching, only to be disappointed when you realize the story's not going anywhere.

Van der Oest possesses a sure visual sense, and the lead performances are confident and promising, considering the actors' relative inexperience.

A contrived, rather unpleasant English-lingo thriller set in the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Moonlight takes a precocious love story between a young rich girl and an Afghan boy to kinky limits where few auds will want to tread.

With no common language, these two connect instantly -- perhaps it's the blood -- and embark on an emotionally wrenching journey in this visually appealing, occasionally heavy-handed thriller from Paula van der Oest.
