Reviews in German: "Cocteau spielt auf faszinierende Weise mit Mythen und Bildern. Er schafft eine Welt der Halbschatten, der Rätsel, in der Spiegel zur Tür ins Jenseits und schwarz uniformierte Motorradfahrer zu Boten des Todes werden. Das Irreale dringt in die Realität ein, und das Jenseits gibt sich mit seinem Ritual von Verhören und Verhandlungen betont diesseitig." (Dieter Krusche)
