Reviews:
"...With impressive visuals complementing the thought-provoking action..." - 12/01/2003 Total Film, p.132


"[A]n impressive achievementÂ….The storytelling is surprisingly dark and does nothing to play down references to Stalin and Trotsky." - 12/01/2003 Sight and Sound, p.62


"[T]he drawing manages to be relatively minimalist and expressive at the same time....Its historical interest can't be denied." - 11/05/2004 USA Today, p.6E
