Reviews (in Lithuanian):
Good life, terrible life
"Each time, when you follow logically inexplicable actions, you however trust that they're needed here, there's a sense of trust in the director: it means she managed to create a theatre-fairytale, in which you do not question the lie. <...> The range of expression of the director stretches from theatricality in bold to shallow glimpses of social media, that sometimes leave us with a sense that we're being pleased. We're close to the feeling in the manner that you like it, because we're staging "As you like it". And this suits the staging."

"The flirt with the "not real", i.e. a woman crossdressed as a man is the most interesting: the spectator however perceives this character as female, and not male <...>. The director tries to show that there's no essential difference between straight and LGBT love dramas. They share the same fight for power and lack of understanding"
