‘Frosh Dutch helmer Tjebbo Penning has fashioned a sleek, highly stylized arthouse thriller.’
Variety – Ronnie Scheib

‘An intriguing psychological drama by Tjebbo Penning in a confident directorial debut.’
The New York Daily News – Jamie Bernard

‘MORLANG finds co-writer and director Tjebbo Penning taking reality and running with it, and creating a moody, stylized picture in the process. Morlang’s pacing is near perfect, allowing for character development, but never letting it overshadow the mystery.’
Entertainment Today, Aaron M. Fontana
