An extraordinary black-and-white film shot in Paris in 1968, ROUE DE CENDRES / WHEEL OF ASHES is a film that haunts you long after you have left the cinema. Peter Emmanuel Goldman is really a forgotten American genius. — Henri Sera, Theiapolis Cinema
Pierre Clémenti is sensational. He’s not acting: he’s living his part. Diaphanous, plagued by an inner fire, his cheeks hollow, he is in close communion with the filmmaker and his quest. Just as in ECHOES OF SILENCE, Goldman’s vision brings us beyond the image into a world of palpitations and callings. — Jean-Louis Bory, 1971, Le Nouvel Observateur
