Reception

The reviewer for Variety found that the director had demonstrated “his thoroughgoing knowledge of and delight in film history, yet his striving for a 1970s screwball vibe feels too forced and artificial”. In Público's Ípsilon, Luís Miguel Oliveira gave the film two out of five stars.

The film was nominated for the Swiss Film Award in three categories: Best Fiction Film, Best Screenplay (Lionel Baier and Julien Bouissoux), and Best Actor (Patrick Lapp) but did not win, losing to I Am the Keeper in each category.
