„The documentary Doberdob, a Novel by a Rebel (...), filmed by the author and director Martin Turk, determinedly puts Prezihov Voranc right back into the Slovene historical memory as late as 65 years after the writer's death.(...). The film Doberdob, a Novel by a Rebel is an exceptional example of documentarian craft; besides, it includes suspense and a poetic, even open ending.“ Ženja Leiler, Delo

„The documentary feature presenting various narrators and professionals is not purely the story about a novel but mostly the life story of Prezihov Voranc. And what a cinematic life it was! What an existence!“ Irena Štaudohar, Sobota priloga
„Many narrators, Prezih's grand-daughter Metka PetriC among them, allow the documentary to encompass several dimensions of Prezihov Voranc, thus showing his literary and poetic greatness that surpasses his primary fame as the author of Lilies of the Valley and The Self-Sown.“ Petra Lesjak Tušek, Večer
