All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (0)

The film succeeds as an ethical enquiry and as populist, politically intelligent drama.

Time Out
Top Critic

[A] richly textured and hearty yet fable-like view of domestic intimacy and social conflict.

New Yorker
Top Critic

Like the characters themselves, the performances are highly sympathetic but the film remains a social debate in the great 19th-century tradition...

Unusual, compelling and inspirational enough to moisten your eyes.

Birmingham Post

Characteristically honest and affecting.

Observer [UK]

Justice, decency and solidarity sometimes feel like old-fashioned virtues but they lie at the heart of The Snows Of Kilimanjaro.

Daily Express

Deeper than it first appears. And even playing a dullard, Darroussin dazzles.

Little White Lies

It's made with a sure and steady hand that never takes shortcuts with its important message.

Full Review… | September 13, 2012

Robert Guédiguian's affecting blend of social grit and domestic tenderness steers clear of sentimentality - just.

Full Review… | September 13, 2012
Daily Telegraph

This heart-warming and socially conscious French drama is poignantly beautiful with a standout lead performance from director Robert Guediguian's muse, Ariane Ascaride.

Full Review… | September 12, 2012

Contains no traces of Hemingway whatsoever. Good.

Full Review… | September 9, 2012

A poignant portrait of marriage and a dramatic chronicle of hardships and justice.

Full Review… | September 9, 2012
Empire Magazine

Shot in warm, summery tones, TSOK muses pertinently on justice and forgiveness while painting a moving portrait of an enduring marriage.

Total Film

Provocative stuff.

The List

Doce e caloroso como seus personagens principais, mas falho como seu jovem bandido.

Full Review… | April 4, 2012
Cinema em Cena

The original script, inspired by the Victor Hugo poem How Good Are the Poor, hooks the viewer; indifference is impossible.

Full Review… | March 8, 2012

Translates perfectly well as a portrait of Boomers who pat themselves on the back for past glories and the reality of a resentful younger demographic on their heels.

Jam! Movies

The circumstances here, like the characters, are fascinatingly complex.
