Hadžihalilović's film was highly decorated after its premiere, winning several awards including Best New Director from the San Sebastián International Film Festival, Best Cinematography from the Stockholm Film Festival, and the People's Choice Award at the Istanbul International Film Festival.
Although the director herself as stated that she does not wish to give answers to every bit of symbolism in her movie, it allows the viewer to draw their own conclusions on what each theme means to them. Following in the ilk of being a deeply metaphoric ride with more weight placed on effective atmosphere, Lucile Hadžihalilović's sophomore film Evolution exercises her knack for submersing audiences into her unique universes.
