Hana Slak je pretresljivo zgodbo o rudarju, ki se kot neke vrste novodobna Antigona bori za dostojen pokop žrtev povojnih pobojev, podala z izjemno mero pripovednega občutka. Njen film tako odlikujejo odličen ritem, spretna dramaturška konstrukcija, učinkovita raba glasbenih vložkov in seveda tudi delo z igralci, ki jim je brez velikih besed uspelo pokazati, da so mali posamezniki praviloma največji ljudje.
