Original Title: Nacht vor Augen

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Brigitte Maria Bertele disturbing debut [...] Hanno Koffler as aggressive bed-wetter haunted by his nightmares succeeds in waking sympathy for the washed-up character.

Die Zeit

"A Hero's Welcome" describes very realistic a phenomenon that seems to appear after wars: The speechlessness of returnees. And the lack of interest of society to what they have experienced.

ZDF Aspekte

"The film comes along quietly, but hits the audience directly and takes it beyond the festival. [...] An impressive film that shows with shocking clarity, that war continuies in the minds of soldiers long after their return home."

Die Welt

Britta Bertele shows in an authentic way how politics rules even in the heads of simple people. David returns as a zombie from a war that no one understands.
