„Steff Gruber’s thorough account of a failed relationship represents a novelty in Swiss film, in its method as well as in its subject. ‘Moon in Taurus’ does not tell a story but demonstrates how three people try to deal with their his/herstory. (…) Not only do two different languages come together (or rather not come together) in this film, but at least two different appreciations of what talking can do for you. Communication functions on many different levels. Not all the questions are answered. On the other hand, a lot of questions are answered in the film that haven’t even been asked. Documentary? Fiction? None of both? ‘Moon in Taurus’ should be seen first of all as an ethnological study. Not art is its prime concern, no message is reveald.“
