    Otro retrato imprescindible y desolador de Helena Trestíková, filmado a lo largo de trece años, en torno a la supervivencia, la maternidad y fundamentalmente a la exclusión, como también lo es No Quarto da Vanda, de Pedro Costa, aunque el realismo de la Trestíková se encuentre muchas veces en las antípodas de la estética del director portugués. Y como todo el cine de la checa, pero en esta ocasión más, al estar rodada a la intemperie, Katka consigue atrapar la esencia del ser humano, aún en las condiciones sociales más adversas para su manifestación.
