Charles Gant @ Screen International,
"The White King is intelligently transposed into an unnamed English-speaking totalitarian country by Belgian/English husband-and-wife team Jörg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht, making a promising feature debut... through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy, the film succeeds best at evoking its sinister, hermetic world, as young Djata (Lorenzo Allchurch) deals with the absence of his political prisoner father."
Rachel Bowles @ The Skinny
“Topical, dramatic, moving”
Katrina Conaglen @ WOW247
“Wrenching, compelling and all too timely”
David Kettle @ The Arts Desk
Fascinating and unsettling
Susanna Norbiato @ Dark Side Cinema,
An elegant and intimate tale, perfect performances.
David Monteith @ Geek Syndicate
