"The Sons of Cain is an intentionally non-narrative film based on the pre-grammatical structure of the dream. It brings a different angle to an old Albanian social issue. It treats a serious theme from the prospective of women and children, by using their dreams as the main language of communication and building a nostalgic dreamy mood in terms of a visual message. By treating the characters not as victims but as creative human beings, The Sons of Cain opens a window onto rarely shown aspects of people's emotional journeys." [Keti Stamo]
