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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the most intriguing films of the year. A film that says a lot by saying little.
neither Ivalu nor Cousineau have the light, deft touch it takes to merge cultural fiction and social realism in a seamless manner
A poignant, heartfelt, enlightening and lyrical journey filled with beautiful, haunting images.
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.
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.
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.
I'm going to so take flack for this. A great effort by a team of first time filmmakers and yes...it is good that northern communities are making films but I found this dreadfully dull.
