"Moonlight is a disturbing and daring thriller with an exceptional performance by 13-year-old Laurien Van den Broeck."V.A. Musetto
"In this English-language Dutch thriller, a 13-year-old girl and a young Afghan drug courier fall in love while fleeing his employers."Jeannette Catsoulis
"Not only is the candid (but never prurient) treatment of early-teen sexuality and drug use too hot to handle, but the narrative blend of fairy-tale wonder and nightmare logic feels sui generis."Joshua Land
"A contrived, rather unpleasant English-lingo thriller set in the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Moonlight takes a precocious love story between a young rich girl and an Afghan boy to kinky limits where few auds will want to tread."Deborah Young
