UK Film Review, symptoms
"Symptoms is a film of real promise from director Marianna Dean, within a short space she manages to convey tension, laughter and ultimately sadness, in a story that would resonate with the majority of audiences and most importantly it reminds us of what we all find to be most comforting, somebody to talk to."
the independent critic, Symtoms
"Its rich story and with Lam's sensitive and intelligent portrayal of Sam, whose body language says so much even when Sam himself is being incredibly quiet."
UK Film Review, Leo?
"Dean utilises a reduced number of locations well, relying more heavily on the funny and believable dialogue to provide momentum. Her strengths in blocking the scenes prove formidable, as each sequence felt fresh and engaging even though they were made up of largely the same elements."
