Charles Martin Smith's romantic adventure film The Snow Walker concerns a brave risk-taking pilot (Barry Pepper) and an Inuit woman in frail health who is his passenger. When the pair experience a plane crash, each is forced to learn from and help the other in order to survive the variety of obstacles the harsh landscape throws in their path. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

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.
[A]voids descending into the overtly sentimental by not romanticizing a harsh land...
An old school adventure whose simple themes resonate with a refreshing honesty.
Através das belíssimas atuações de Pepper e da estreante Piugattuk, a narrativa desenvolve-se com calma até atingir um clímax emocional inesperado, mas eficiente.
...given the skill with which this spare story has been filmed, it's hard not to be entertained on some level.
Smith's respect and love for the wilderness is clear in every frame, and allows the viewer to become fully immersed in the characters' predicaments.
