Lilya seeps into your bones, and it's not easy to shake off.
April 17, 2003
Both an archetypal case study and a personal drama whose spunky central character you come to care about so deeply that you want to cry out a warning at each step toward her ruination.

This isn't an easy film -- only a memorable one.

Grim but honest, and young Oksana Akinshina is glorious.
April 15, 2003
Show Me Love and Together were a bit sentimental for my taste; the brutally overdetermined Lilya demonstrates that [Moodysson] can go to the other extreme.
April 9, 2003
A haunting and incandescent work of art.
March 31, 2003
Moodysson has an impressive ability to show the world from the perspective of children, and to elicit naturalistic performances from his youthful actors.
January 30, 2003
A hard-hitting, dark and tragic story that rarely lets up.
November 20, 2002
Moodysson, a former poet, directs with an accomplished mix of lyricism and grit.
