Reviewers were somewhat split in their assessment of the film. In a review for Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet, Eirik Alver gave the movie a dice throw of five and called it thematically "recognizable".[2] Jon Selås of Verdens Gang gave it only three points, calling it a "uneven mix of ambitious, uncompromising will".[1]
