- 「……因此，《窒愛青春》將會感動那些陷入難以理解又暴力的渴望、失望、期望的人……，以及已經跨越門檻的人，逝去時刻的記憶仍然歷歷在目。導演說：『匆忙的生活使得我們忘卻了這些根本而共通的印象，它們以關鍵方式塑造了我們的個性。』每個新世代都在塑造自己的年代，基於共通而普遍的對抗，面對其精神和未知世界的神秘深淵。」電影理論家Andrej Sprah
- 《窒愛青春》是斯洛維尼亞導演馬丁特克的第三部長片，令人難忘。TehTeard的動人配樂加上RadislavJovanov的優美掌鏡，刻畫出Klemen和同伴的互動，他們似乎沒有察覺到變化的環境給Klemen帶來嚴重焦慮。-Silvia Fabbri
- 「特克將劇本轉譯成一部具有視覺吸引力的電影，他回到童年的故鄉，以他記憶中的聲音、光線和夏日的熱度創作了一首視覺詩歌。」Gianluca Vignola
- 「特克的執導手法令人聯想到盧卡格達戈尼諾的《以你的名字呼喚我》，本片以優雅的形式，講述了一個發生在炎熱夏天的初戀和心痛的故事。以斯洛維尼亞美麗的大自然為背景，美麗而原始的斯洛維尼亞鄉村在RadislavJovanov掌鏡下更加美得出奇。」-Roberto Puntato
- 「馬丁特克拍出一部精緻小品。」-Sofia Peroni
- 「和主角Klemen一樣，這部電影也不忘呼吸。本片敘事不按時間順序，而是由場景、事件和轉瞬即逝的情節組成，以紀念成長的時刻。美麗的大自然，茂密的肥沃田野，緩緩流動的河水，這裡不僅是無憂無慮的遊樂場，黑暗中還隱藏著無形和無處不在的變化。……特克帶來最真誠、成熟的作品，令人想起了成長電影中的夏季。」-Tina Lesnicar
- 這些就是導演馬丁特克以精緻但寫實的手法在新片《窒愛青春》裡呈現的感受。」GajaPöschl，斯洛維尼亞Ars電台，〈Let's Go to the Cinema〉節目。

Director’s Statement :
“Don't forget to breathe” is an intimate drama about growing up, the first love, jealousy and strong emotions that pervade a person during this period. Through the eyes of a 15-year-old, I wanted to portray this hectic period of adolescence, marked by unwise outbursts, awkward confusion, unwavering arrogance, and most of all by the fear of losing the person who was most important to you at that moment. At the same time, the inevitable part of this period is the sympathy and attraction that enable a young man to cross into the adult world. I believe that these are formative, all-knowing and universal impressions that we have forgotten in the haste of life, even though they have shaped our personalities in a crucial way. ” - Martin Turk
- "In “Don't forget to breathe”, we are witnessing the" great awakening "of the main protagonist, which not only unfolds because the character has entered a crucial period of his growing up, but because this process is triggered by the scenery of a hot summer in an embrace of unspoiled nature. It is precisely the summer in the province that is so important to the flow of the narrative that the seasons can not only be seen as a scenic background, but nature itself plays the role of a central film character. And not just any character - summer is that supreme demiurge, the hand of God, who, like in a Greek drama, throws his heroes into the world with all his might and faces trials that cannot be predicted and whose consequences will be realized until much later. . There is only one thing in advance - it will be that one unforgettable summer that will forever mark their lives.”MaticMajcen, Film Critic
- “…Therefore, Do not forget to breathe is a film that will be felt by those who find themselves in the swirls of incomprehensible but violent longings, disappointments, expectations… and think, know and feel that at the same time no one and no one, nothing and everything… so will those who have already crossed the threshold of the future, but the memory of the vulnerable moments of passing is still alive and tangible. But we will also feel it for those of us who, perhaps, have all these heated emotions and unsettling feelings "forgotten in the haste of life, even though they have shaped our personality", according to the film's author. It can be seen as a reminder that each new generation is shaping its own, but on the basis of a common, universal confrontation with the terribly mysterious depths of its spirit and incomprehensible world.” Andrej Sprah, Film Theorist
- “Remember to Breathe, the third feature film by Slovenian director Martin Turk, is a valuable cinematic gem and is one of those films that will be hard to forget. /../ Turk's
sophisticated gaze, the touching and sensual music of TehTeard, and the beautiful photograph of RadislavJovanov are in a melancholy dance that portrays Klemen and his companions who do not seem to perceive Klemen's severe anxiety caused by the change caused by the change experience.” Silvia Fabbri
- "Turk managed to translate the script into a visually compelling film. With him, he returns to his childhood places and creates visual poetry through which he remembers the sounds, the rays of the sun and the summer heat. " Gianluca Vignola
- “If you remember the movie Call Me By Your Name, LuceGuadaginova when watching the movie, it will be because of Turk's directing, which manages to present the story of a hot summer, first love and pain with elegance and grace. The beautiful and untouched Slovenian countryside, where the story takes place and where we really get to know the main character, is even more beautiful with the evocative photo of RadislavJovanov.” Roberto Puntato
- "Martin Turk has created a small cinematic gem." Sofia Peroni
- "The young characters are portrayed by Matija Valant, Tina Ugrin and Klara Kuk, three film newcomers who very successfully embody all the anxieties and joys that a youthful discovery brings to life." AlessiaMarvuglia–
- Like the main character Klemen, the film does not forget to breathe. A story that does not run chronologically but consists of scenes, events and fleeting episodes as moments of remembrance of growing up, lavish shots of nature, lush fertile fields, a lazy river, which is not only a carefree play field, but in the darkness hides a hint of change, invisible and ubiquitous. /… / Turk's most sincere and mature film, which brings to mind all the similar growing up in the film summers.
-Tina Lesnicar, Delo
- When you are fifteen, everything gets on your nerves. Mom, dad, siblings, classmates, things that change and things that don't. Everything. Most of all, it gets on your nerves that you don't know very well what is so bad about your nerves, because you can't really put it into words, let alone explain it, you can only feel it, and it is so very powerful. On top of all these accumulated feelings, no one is taking you very seriously. Adults have long forgotten what weight they have, peers have their heads full of their problems, and you are increasingly confused, angry and lonely. Alone against everyone, trapped in the interim of past childhood and approaching adulthood. And you're scared. /… /
- These are the feelings, emotions and states in which director Martin Turk immersed the story of his new feature film in an extremely delicate yet authentically full-blooded way Don't forget to breathe . "-GajaPöschl, 3rd program of Radio Slovenia - Ars, from the program Let's Go to the Cinema -
