"Ce "Sicilian Ghost Story", porté par deux gamins épatants, colle ainsi à la peau du spectateur, l’envoûte jusqu’à l’étourdir. Les derniers instants de cette oeuvre déchirent le coeur de celles et ceux qui auront accepté de voyager jusqu’à ces terres maudites."
Studio Magazine ****

"C’est osé, sublimement réalisé, d’une troublante beauté."
Le Nouvel Observateur ****

"Formidable chronique sicilienne qui aborde le thème des enfants martyrisés par la mafia, des fantômes et des secrets de famille, "Sicilian Ghost Story" flirte de façon étonnante avec le fantastique, tout en dénonçant un système d’une terrible cruauté."
