"A minor official classic film about childhood, perhaps on a par with Bob Clark’s A CHRISTMAS STORY in the US or Ken Loach’s KES in the UK. [...] CELIA is extraordinarily complex and merits multiple viewings. The fact that it’s so hard to categorise is one of its most appealing factors. A psychological study of children and parents and a period political piece, it’s an equally valid and interesting exercise to approach it for its connections with horror cinema."

"CELIA is one of those rare debut features that is so thoughtfully structured, so impressively acted – there’s not a wrong note in any of the performances here – and so confidently directed... It’s a film that never shouts because it never needs to, but which still managed to leave me quietly reeling, and itching to watch it again. Remarkable. [...] A terrific film on an excellent Blu-ray. Highly recommended."
