Satisfyingly ambiguous and starkly tactile in its inquiry into where sensation ends and identity begins, David Mackenzie's rampaging-virus movie doesn't dodge genre potholes so much as it stays off that road entirely.

You've got to make room in your heart for a film in which the world ends with neither a bang nor a whimper but a cuddle.

Frustrating at times, possibly too insistent when it comes to screen poetry, but the concept is intriguing, offering enough scenes of oddity and distress to hold attention and occasionally raise anxiety levels.

Engrossing before packing a staggering emotional wallop as its full implications are revealed.

The film's limited budget means that the end of the world looks no more cataclysmic than a prolonged strike by Glasgow's bin-men.

The film loses its charm with annoying sequences that have a narrator explain to us "The Meaning of it All" and then tell us "What Really Matters" in life: Love. Love. Love.

Sadly, the central romance fails to convince as the two leads lack chemistry...

One thinks inevitably of Camus's La peste.

British director David Mackenzie makes good use of an obviously limited budget, with the apocalypse neatly suggested by just a few litter-strewn Glasgow streets patrolled by men in respirator masks.

Antonia Quirke
Financial Times

This is a frightening and tender sci-fi, shot very flat and unhysterical, full of eccentric detail (the need to make more entertaining food after everyone loses their sense of taste) and always an air of regret spilling out at the edges.

Although watchable, the only thing that succeeds is Mackenzie triggering our deepest, darkest fears of complete sensory malfunction ...

Sublimely and uncompromisingly daft.

It's a movie that leaves you guiltily unimpressed while it pours its pseudo-lyrical heart out.

A pretentious and perfectly daft film that manages to combine absurdity with tedium.

Director David Mackenzie's refreshing take on the disaster plague genre goes for the personal rather than the pandemic...

Shadows on the Wall

The story and characters have nowhere to go beyond bleak acceptance of the inevitable. So it's difficult to care what happens.

Thrillingly ambitious, ecstatically romantic, utterly unexpected.

Chicly shot and edited, and pretty much art-directed to death, Mackenzie's movie is curiously underwhelming and unbearably pretentious.
