“It’s certainly a unique piece of work (and something of a surprise winner at Cannes) that should appeal to a wide audience.” - Laurence Boyce, Cineuropa

“The transfiguration of the banal is the challenge hidden behind a singular and rich work like Timecode.” - Àngel Quintana, Caiman Cuadernos de Cine

“The sense of measure continues in form, only here it is a measure at the service of hidden, and finally released, emotions.” - Julián's Oscar, Cortosfera
