„Max Gleschinski’s debut film shows that there is indeed such thing as original cinema to be discovered far away from German film funding landscape. His film is a love drama and Heimat thriller, told in flashbacks, charged with genre elements and set in an East German world that offers space for the big questions of class differences, lack of perspective and the anger about the absence happiness.“ Süddeutsche Zeitung
„Of course, A CLEAR FELLING is genre cinema that boasts a booming soundtrack and fun with infernal violent cinematic effects. In its evocation of an almost Shakespearean love conflict, however, the film proves bold courage and even risks some rather silly jokes about a Saxon tourist family.“ Spiegel Online
