Mark Kermode's view: "I thought it was a very adventurous idea to take a soundtrack of a harrowing telephone call and put on it, what seem to be images of domestic bliss,  but in this context come to be very other.  A very good idea, very professionally and succinctly executed and a very disturbing result  - so congratulations to Rob Brown."

Contains scenes some viewers may find disturbing.
