Critic Reviews for Before Tomorrow (Le Jour avant le lendemain)

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

    December 4, 2009 | Rating: 2/5
  • 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.

    March 27, 2009 | Rating: 3/4
  • 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.

    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.
