Reviews
Imagine the polar opposite of Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and you have something like the brilliant, kindly heroine of Nise–The Heart of Madness.
Jonathan Holland, Film Journal
Unlike in so many films, here the actors' portrayals of psychiatric patients' conditions -- and their humanity -- ring true.
Daphne Howland, Village Voice
...a brilliantly rendered slice of history which touches on numerous subjects and really does justice to the people it portrays.
