Critic Reviews for Far North
If as much care were taken with script as with visuals, pic would have more impact.
This is one tough and confronting film, its beauty only adding to the shock value
The freaky finale kind of undermines any sympathy we might have built up, but it adds a level of classical storytelling that makes the film feel utterly timeless.
Audience Reviews for Far North
Based on the book 'True North', this eerie movie revolves around three characters. Disturbing in parts, it tries to be an effective psychological thriller, but it failed at every level as far as I'm concerned. Except for the beautiful scenery. Yet, give it a go; it might be your cup of tea (my taste is not quite usual). I guess that those who are gifted to appreciate certain type of creative/artistic/substantial films are more bound to like this movie. Well, to each, their own.
My sister was telling me about this movie and I had to watch it. Okay, so they don't talk much in this movie, but the scenery was pretty cool to look at the whole time.
Two women, an older one who took in a baby girl and raised her pretty much as her own. They live on their own away from other people moving from place to place. Unexpectedly one day, the older lady comes upon a man who's pretty much close to death and takes him in. Everything starts to change from then on and the ending is definitely worth it. lol
Now theres a thing. A character study of two women surviving in the harsh icy north somewhere with reindeers and igloos and the like. Very atmostpheric, kind of an arctic Cold Mountain (ish), then Sean Bean turns up, characters develop and it all turns gothic in the last fifteen minutes.
