News & Interviews for The Snow Walker
Critic Reviews for The Snow Walker
The Snow Walker is not Atanarjuat, but it captures the actual scenic beauty of the North and with it, the poetic truth of brotherhood in an unforgiving land.
As predicable as the annual fall of the Maple Leafs, but considerably more tragic, as traditional as the recurring scam of political patronage, but a lot more compelling, The Snow Walker is a vintage slice of Canadiana.
Constant interruptions prevent the story from building to a satisfying emotional pitch, leaving the film, like the characters, to trudge circuitously across that vast frozen tundra.
Audience Reviews for The Snow Walker
Amazing movie. Never boring.
It's a story of struggle for survival of a pilot & an ill Inuit girl as they get stuck in the Arctic tundra after their plane almost crashes down.
If that sounds appealing to you, go for it. Somehow, it appealed to me a bit. But more than its plot, IMDb reviews & rating encouraged me more to go for it. Eventually, I went for it & ended up being disappointed. For me, it was too dry & too plain to be effective.
I don't know; if you're too insightful & stuffs like "ooh see, how they're struggling for their survival; ooh, see how they're trying to interact & understand each other despite of knowing too little of each other's languages; wow, what a wonderful scenery," etc. touch your senses, you might wanna give it a go.
Simple yet Powerful.
A story of survival, and of how two entirely different individuals come together and form a relation that transcends all the differences between them.
