"This is about as radical and forward-thinking as contemporary cinema gets." Paul Attard

IN REVIEW ONLINE

"In this erotic and sexual neo-Bunuélien "pas de deux"... Ann Oren's Piaffe lit up the final days of the competition, deploying its surrealist material from a part of the cinema craft: foley artistry..." Clarisse Fabre

LE MONDE

"Rarely has one seen such free, undefined eroticism in the cinema... What a gift: if Maya Deren, the great American avant-garde pioneer, were alive today, she would probably make a film like this." Daniel Kothenschulte

FRANKFURTER RUNDSCHAU

"A fantastical homage to the magical attributes of cinema and the untapped eroticism lurking within our primordial brains, Oren constructs a hypnotic exercise of metamorphic hedonism." Nicholas Bell

IONCINEMA

"Piaffe is its own playful and majestic beast." Sophie Monks Kaufman

INDIE WIRE

"..Ann Oren captures the audience’s imagination by way of an elegant and poetic work which urges us to take a critical look at our relationship with “normality”. Muriel del Don
