"What I see here feels like it could be a narrative that explores that line between the private lives of youth and the very public things they do nowadays."
"Young and ambitious, capturing the paradoxical nature of life."
Sound on Sight
"I think that big studio productions can learn something from this independent film. The true value of a movie is in the richness of the story, and well developed characters."
Fat Samurai Reviews
"Pixelschatten is (...) constructed with superb taste, confidence and remarkable naturalism (particularly given its subject matter). Director Anil Jacob Kunnel, shooting on what can only be described as a face-mounted-DSLR-rig, assembles an endearing cast of young German talent that work hard to reap genuine emotional investment from the audience."

"A potent and affecting film, filled with moments so genuine that they manage to capture that rare moment when life is both funny and painful."
"Like David Fincher's "The Social Network", this film brilliantly captures our modern online culture."
"Piixelschatten is an excellent look at the attraction of social media, the dangers it represents, and the problematic nature of attempting to represent 'the truth' in one's art, whatever that might mean."
"An authentic, refreshing and entertaining look at what it means to live in a modern world"
CC2K -The Nexus of Pop-Culture Fandom
"A near-perfect examination of real lives through an actual first-hand perspective"
