"The impressive animated feature <<White Plastic Sky>> proposes a bleak dystopia reminiscent of <<Soylent Green>> (...) Stefan's struggle to keep Nora alive is touching, even evoking the myth of Apollo and Daphne. (...) For a film set in 2123, the future depicted is as likely as could be." (Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter).

Berlinale, Annecy Festival.
