Critic Reviews for Before the Winter Chill

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

Elegantly cool rather than downright chilly, novelist-turned-filmmaker Philippe Claudel's third feature has a distinctly literary feel, as it plants its dramatic seeds very methodically before accelerating to a startling denouement.

The all-important chill is tepid.

An intriguing thriller based on melancholy, mystery, vagueness, ambiguity and perfectionism. [full review in Spanish]

It's only towards the end that you discover that Before the Winter Chill could have been a gripping thriller. Instead it's a mildly haunting disquisition on the peril of the midlife crisis.

You need to be patient with Before The Winter Chill. It is a gloomy, slow-burning film that adds insight and intrigue the way an artist brings texture and colour to a painting.

An affecting midlife mood piece.
