Sight & Sound magazine, omtale, juli 2017:

“In Esther Wellejus’ beautiful and deeply moving short You Are Still Somebody’s Someone, the evocation of Odysseus is a more mournful. On this occasion he is the absent father, disappeared to foreign lands without reasonable explanation. Wellejus’ film is an elemental expression of memory and childhood trauma accompanied by a letter to her father, read in voiceover, which one imagines he’ll never hear. Through home movies and archival footage, the film transports the audience to the tactile surroundings of the director’s home in Lolland, Denmark as shifting seasons and creeping storms seem to ebb and flow with the tides of her personal torment.”

Fyens Stifttidende, anmeldelse, august 2017:

“Som et indadskuende, visuelt digt folder Esther Wellejus historien om sin far sig ud i den aldeles levende og bevægende intimdokumentar “Vi lader billedet stå et øjeblik””… “(filmen) hører til den slags introverte, lyriske dokumentarfilm, der synes at have et terapeutisk og personligt afsæt. Som næsten al god kunst. Formet i intimitet og tænksomhed uden den fjerneste hensyntagen til publikum. Der såmænd nok skal springe om bord og blive grebet af rejsen, når materialet er så godt skruet sammen som her.”
