Quotes:

– “Archetypal and resonant precisely for the bare simplicity of its narrative architecture, the infrequency of its dialogue and the sparse beauty of its dark mise en scène, MORGENRØDE is a moody, minimalist alternative to Miller’s mad maximalism.”
SIGHT & SOUND Magazine, Anton Bitel

– “MORGENRØDE is Beautifully Cryptic”
– “MORGENRØDE lulls the viewer into a sort of theta state, like the monotone chanting of Buddhist monks”
Quiet Earth, Daniel Olmos

– “8+ / 10”
Cinepaxy, Lorenzo Paci

– “This is a slow-paced affair that occasionally drags, stretching the limits of its dramatic tension to near-breaking point…”
– “Hultgreen has taken a wilderness and turned it into somewhere quite magical and alien…”
– “RAHAB (Bjørklund) relies on the expressiveness in his eyes as the only indicator of his state of mind which ranges from fear to delirium.”
Filmuforia.co.uk, Meredith Taylor

– “…a mesmerising piece of cinema that will draw you in and have you hanging on every syllable of dialogue, is a fresh addition to the rising reputation of Norwegian cinema.”
Festival guide of SCI-FI-LONDON Film Festival

– “Anders Elsrud Hultgreen has opened a new chapter in the short history of Norwegian science fiction film.”
Vagant, Aksel Kielland

– “…beautiful, hypnotizing and unique”
– “…stunning cinematography”
Spektakulärt, Peter Öberg

– “5/6”
– “Morgenrøde is an aesthetic pleasure […], Morgenrøde is thought provoking – an aesthetically and philosophically challenging experience.”
Tor Martin Årseth, CINERAMA.no

– “Tense, ritualistic, and gritty…”
– “Morgenrøde is a realistic science fiction film that creates a sense of beauty through isolation, and shows that cinema can indeed be used for works of art.”
Emma Robinson, Cinema Scandinavia

– “Anders Elsrud Hultgreen has made what can only be described as the most artistically ambitious Norwegian sci-fi film ever.”
Festival guide of Bergen International Film Festival

– “Morgenrøde makes Norwegian film more intriguing.”
Einar Gulvog Staalesen, Mørkets Opplevelser, P2 NRK Radio

– “Rather than confining itself within the narrative of storytelling, ‘Morgenrøde’ is brain fodder that will ignite the intellect of those open to the unknown and seek further assistance in that belief, not of what is out there but rather knowing that “something” is there.”
Martyn Wakefield, BloodGuts UK Horror

– “…little the universe connects us to our own world. The story could therefore take place on another planet or in another dimension or simply being a story ethereal philosophical laid.”
– “Hauntingly impressive scenery…”
Christophe Lemonnier, DevilDead.com
