Critic Reviews for Valley of Shadows

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

  • While the imagery is influenced by a wide range of artists from Gustave Doré to Norwegian landscape painter Lars Hertervig, "Valley" is completely modern in design even as its concept remains timeless.

  • There's real confidence in the filmmaking, creating a shadowy world that washes over you, in which a boy gets lost in his nightmares, perhaps learning that the monster all children fear is a force to be protected.

  • The gothic horror tradition is alive and well in moody, brooding Norwegian effort Valley of Shadows, which proves as haunting and gorgeously gloomy as its title suggests.

  • An intriguing if rarely completely successful piece of work...

  • The cinematography of Marius Matzow Gulbrandsen is so beautifully framed and textured that it's possible, during the most mesmerizing stretches, to believe that Valley of Shadows is a great debut.

  • The title Valley of Shadows speaks to its diaphanous nature, a difficult to pin down, ephemeral tale that nonetheless speaks to a greater illumination that helps cast its form.
