“The way longing and grief are treated in The Story of V is both tangible and concrete and mysterious and abstract. With the underlying point that the difficult does not go away, but we can learn to live with it if we dare. It is a painful, and very nice point. Life hurts and it’s ok. “

– Teateravisen, Betina Rex
