  • A fantastic film! It is a gentle and generous introduction to the Moken world, which is as precious as it is fragile. Hook is the best representative any culture could have, a man of quiet dignity and resolve. The film is also remarkably visual - just amazing images and colors. More than any other Norwegian film in recent history, this film is important and needs to be seen around the world.
    Peter Eisenstein, Screenwriter
  • No Word for Worry is an aesthetic and thematic shock that anyone with a conscience for nature, culture and the environment must see.

The documentary shows the power to make a difference. This is a universal story about the little man against the big powers. The film is beautifully photographed and has a cinematic style where the scenes are allowed to live and the images to last a long time. The director allows us to be in situations and does not fall for the temptation to overtell. The filmmaker lets us breathe, even under water.
