“The absurdity of borders and the decency of the average Joe are the main themes of Marian Crisan’s buzzed-about feature debut ‘Morgen”, writes the Variety. ‘the Helmer’s 2008 Palm d’or for short “Megatron” set up expectations that that “Morgen” confirms,” the review goes on.

“Discreetly controlled lensing and an undistinguished art heart at the film’s core reveal a distinct voice in the Romanian landscape and should translate into modest fest coverage with limited Euro arthouse possibilities for this Locarno jury prizewinner,” the Variety writes.
