"25.8.2013 Vähäeleistä Kaurismäkeä lyhyessä paketissa joka toimii siten varsin hyvin. Puhetta ei ole paljoakaan mutta sitä ei tarvi ollakaan. Hyvin synkkä ilmapiiri on elokuvassa alusta loppuun ja lopun kostopuoli toimii ihan hyvin."

"14/08/2013 Kaurismäkeä taas parhaimmillaan, minkä sanominen tuntuu jo melkein kliseeltä, sillä vain mainioita elokuvia häneltä olen tähän päivään asti nähnyt. Perhearvot, työväen arki, lohduton rakkaustarina, kosto ja sen vähäeleinen kerronta iskee taas miten parhammillaan vain voi. Kompakti ja mestarillinen paketti."

"One Aki Kaurismäki more... if The Man Without a Past is Kaurismäki at his gentle best, The Match Factory Girl is just oozing with bitterness, cynicism and desperation. Iiris is a worker at a match factory. The work is joyless and it doesn't pay well. When she gets home, she has to clean the house, cook and give all her money for her monstrous mother and stepfather. Her brother has left the household a long time ago and only comes by to argue with the rest of the family. Iiris wants to have l"

"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"
