"André Luiz Machado's score frames the action so well, a feature that is not usually as striking as it should be in our cinema".

Original PT-BR: "A trilha de André Luiz Machado emoldura tão bem a ação, uma característica que não costuma ser tão marcante quanto deveria no nosso cinema"

(Francisco Carbone, As Verdades film review at Cenas de Cinema)

"(...) its powerful sense of purpose is beautifully put together, in a style that almost creates a new genre in electronic classical."

(Steve Sheppard, One World Music Radio Saturn Voyager Suite review)

"It impresses me the way the strength of your music carries the audience..."
(Ian Guest, Hungarian composer & Arranger)

"This is first-class work all round..."

(John Pickard, British Composer)
