A Great work."

"Well, KEEP MUM packs a punch in fifteen minutes!
Spare, lyrical, beautiful, tortured. Phenomenal pace"
- Barbara Denman
"KEEP MUM packs a punch delivering a brutal snapshot of a mother pushed beyond the edge - the production values are great, as is the lead performance - the music, sound mix and slick title - Luana has done a great job with modest
means and a slender team"
– Daniel Konrad Cooper, Rather Good Films
"Di Pasquale is a woman to watch.
She has already shown herself to be a director with a precise awareness of what she wants to convey with her camera.
She is sure to continue to gain more recognition
with her future projects."
"KEEP MUM is an unsettling and perplexing film, packed with startling imagery and brimming with verve. The lead actress, Nadira, gives a remarkable performance, especially considering she is so frequently the only character on screen, with no other actors to play off of.
Her climactic interaction with the child answers some questions and raises many others, in the best possible way..."
