This truly is a terrific film. It takes you to the mind of the protagonist and shows, never speaks, the undescibably despair and darkness of the characters.
The best and most realistic film on the issue I have yet seen.

"14.5. Aika lohduton kuvaus kaksi raiskausta tehneen miehen pyristelyistä sopeutua ja mahtua uudelleen yhteiskunnan asettamiin normeihin. Pienieleistä, dramatisoimatonta kerrontaa, jossa ei demonisoida ja heristellä sormea, mutta ei myöskään luoda kehystä, jossa päähenkilön teot näyttäytyisivät ymmärrettävässä muodossa. Tunnelma on painostavan melankolinen, lopetus kaikessa selkeydessään pysäyttävä. Erittäin suositeltava elokuva."

July-August 2013 Movie Journal (40 movies items)

" If only this movie weren't so long, we just might've had a masterpiece here. The Free Will is a frequently harrowing motion picture, and the only problem it has is that sometimes there's a little too much "space" in between the harrowing moments. Tighter editing would've made this the kind of cinematic experience that's unbearably disturbing and magnificent at that. Still, the ending is one of the best in movie history, and worth waiting the 2 hours and 40 minutes to get there."
