Starbust Magazine he has declared:

There is an energy and exuberance to his films that it is impossible not to get involved with

Ciak Magazine instead he wrote:

These films represent something unusual in the panorama of Italian cinema for the theme of science fiction and for the great use of computer graphics as well as being a remarkable result for genre cinema that goes beyond national borders. A unique case not only in the web universe but in Italian cinema. Fantastic stories of a few minutes with the perfection of mini-films. Wonder, adventure, emotion mix with everyday reality

It’s still Carlo Verdone he said:

Andrea Ricca, with his crew, made a delightful film. I would like to congratulate him and all his collaborators for the original idea and the “highly civic” content it has. It looks like a thriller… and then sends a very effective poetic and ethical message instead. Good boy! and Bravi!
