Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics

One of the most intriguing films of the year. A film that says a lot by saying little.

It's set in a forbidding landscape at a dangerous time, and Cousineau and Ivalu show how companionship and shared tradition can go a long way toward sustaining people even in the face of personal devastation.

Spirituality and Practice

A powerful Inuit film about the wisdom and skills of elders, the devastation wrought by contact with Westerners, the importance of community, and the magical connection between grandparents and grandchildren.

Film Journal International

The third in a cinematic trilogy of pre-Christian Inuit life that began with Atanarjuat, The Fast Runner, Before Tomorrow is an outstanding film which presents a distinctly feminine view of the history of the Inuit.

The directors nevertheless manage to locate great reserves of sadness in the material, tapping a particularly rich vein in the wrinkled look of resignation on actress/co-director Ivalu's face.

Nora Lee Mandel

Episodic portrayal of Arctic women's role in physical and cultural survival, from feisty friends to storytelling as a nurturing rite of passage, but depressingly realistic.

A terribly purple folk score by Kate and Anna McGarrigle hypes the spiritual aspects of the Inuit way of life; you'll die laughing on the tundra.

Like all great stories, it paradoxically allows us access to the big picture by bringing us gradually, hauntingly close.

The film is beautiful to behold: The Arctic tundra is a wondrous spectacle, especially in summer. It is well acted, with a naturalism that lends a documentary feel. It is thoughtfully dramatic, albeit in a subtle way.

This is sensitive material handled without sentimentality, though the impact is somewhat muted by the film's cautious editing.

Harrowing as the story is beneath the seal skins and beyond the tenuous, oily flame in centre frame, Before Tomorrow is endowed with a rich humanity and an almost heroic stoicism.

Frustratingly sketchy partly because it is not finally a survival tale but a mystical evocation of the power of Inuit mythology, and how the passing down of ancient wisdom can sustain the human spirit in the direst circumstances.

neither Ivalu nor Cousineau have the light, deft touch it takes to merge cultural fiction and social realism in a seamless manner

With its glacial pace and lack of action,this sample of Arctic artiness may be appreciated principally by anthropologists and social studies teachers and those who can enjoy seeing remote cultures through their own, aboriginal eyes.
