Stengarde gives an arresting performance as a mentally unstable woman.
The film never particularly achieves any depth or resonance and ultimately comes across as a series of wacky, albeit rather disturbing episodes.
Despite Kira's Reason's chamber-drama focus, it never achieves [Madsen's] first film's intimacy.
In Stine Stengade's intensely engaging performance, Kira is always one step away from the abyss, although, without apparent effort, she manages to hang on.
Tying up the psychological loose ends of a movie that promised so much more, the trite ending subscribes to the bogus therapeutic notion that one good cry and a confession of vulnerability can wipe away a lifetime of repression.
An incredibly touching ride along the jilting, jarring ups-and-downs of a deeply, madly loving relationship, where two people never quit trying, and failing, together.
[S]tunning... a sometimes painfully intimate peek at a crumbling marriage...
As [Kira's] actions become more impulsive and her marriage unravels, the film is engagingly unpredictable.
Its pat finale ill-befits a film that otherwise strives successfully for stark emotional realism.
...Stengade's portrayal of a mad housewife is alternately arresting and repelling, the kind of work for which they ought to hand out statues.
Had the film's center been the husband, it would have been more intriguing.
Stengade, in her first leading role, is at once vulnerable and frighteningly manic.
