“ Director Cyrus Neshvad manages to beautifully capture what the sorrow-stricken father feels, and how clinging to his hopes too dearly ultimately makes him unable to discern what’s real and what’s not. (…) All in all, “Fils” is a fantastic achievement, both in a technical sense as well as through its storytelling and implications.” Stonefair Festival, 2016
