Moving as flawlessly and gracefully across the movie screen as the snow on its mute, chilly Scottish landscape, the film inspires amazement and awe as the work of novice director, Alan Rickman.

The film's modest goals are met, and the austere technical aspects of the production further preserve the film's reserve.

The film deals with personal inter-generational interactions in a manner that is touching and realistic.

The Winter Guest is a pleasure to watch, if only (but not only) for the chance to see Thompson. She is a continually revealing artist.

[Rickman] has great command here of look and tone, and I felt I knew what it would be like to wander the streets of that village in Scotland. But the film left me feeling strangely hollow.
