"Katsottu 12.3.2012., dvd Aki Kaurismäen yksi tunnetuimmista teoksista ja samalla arvostetuimmista ja syystä. Kaurismäen ohjaustyyli on hyvin omaleimainen ja Kati Outinen tekee tässä läpimurtonsa kylmäkasvoisena Iriksenä, joka raataa turhan takia ja päätyy pahoihin ongelmiin. Tummaakin tummempaa huumoria riittää etenkin loppupuolella eikä tehokasta tunnelmaa voi vähätellä millään tavalla. Pieniä vikoja tässä on etenemisen suhteen, mutta ei mitään suurempaa. Aki Kaurismäe"

"Basic-Kaurismäkeä. Jopa miehen omaan tyyliin nähden vähäeleinen ja asianmukaisen synkkä pikkuelokuva. Puhetta on vähän ja silloin kun puhutaan niin se iskee sekä katsojan että päähenkilön silmille niin perkeleesti"

"29/08/10, DVD Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö on tarina elämän epäreiluudesta ja kostosta kerrottuna vähällä dialogilla. Aki Kaurismäen luoma maailma on uskomattoman ankea, eikä oikein mitään positiivista tapahdu (vaikka itse rotanmyrky. Tulitikkutehtaan tytön elokuvalliset vahvuudet ovat tunnelman lisäksi kuvaustyössä, pitkäkestoisissa otoksissa sekä näyttelytyössä, joka ei sinänsä ole välttämättä kovin mainiota, mutta jotenkin neljän päänäyttelijän vuorovaikutus toimii"

"Aki Kaurismäki osoittaa toteen ajatuksen, jonka mukaan näyttelijöiden sanallista ulosantia ei juuri tarvitse, jos kehonkielellä ja merkityksellisillä kuvilla saadaan tarinaa vietyä erittäin sujuvasti eteenpäin. Tämä sanaton tarinankerronta luo tälle elokuvalle todella käsinkosketeltavan tunnelman kertoessaan naisesta, joka antaa sortajilleen takaisin yhtä hiljakseen kuin hän on kärsinytkin. Musiikkia käytetty taas loistavasti hyväksi."
