The German Film Rating Agency FBW granted DIE BRUNNENFRAU with a „Rated Valuable“ (Prädikat Wertvoll).
„Julia Finkernagel explicitly tells her story in the style of a parable. Although shot in Andalusia the (Afghan) setting seems genuine. In only a few short scenes the two German actors succeed in conveying the protagonists’ conditions very precisely.
In every scene it becomes evident how alien the visiting helpers and the villagers are and will remain to each other.“
