The cast, including Victoria Carmen Sonne, as the object of both Emil and Johan's affections, and Lars Mikkelsen, as the quarry boss, is uniformly strong and singular.
The movie also has a startling visual texture. Shooting on 16-millimeter film, Mr. Palmason, gliding his camera through snowy woods, has an eye for compositions that rhyme chalk-covered faces and wintry vistas.
Winter Brothers may not be completely successful when all is said and done, but it is certainly a singular film.
Pálmason opts to use Emil's angst not for a forward-moving tale of vengeance but in service of an increasingly abstract study of environment and interiority.
A confidently handled, promisingly edgy feature debut...Winter Brothers dribbles into obfuscation its closing stages but has already confirmed Palmason and company as names to watch.
A film told not so much via traditional cause-and-effect plotting as through tactile, textural imagery, expressively physical performances and industrial-tinged atonal soundscapes.
Winter Brothers picks up on the dramatic, interdependent scenarios generated by its setting.
As a study of masculinity left to fester in an isolated environment, it's an emotionally powerful piece.
Winter Brothers's deft ability to sustain it for as a long as it does is a sure sign of a filmmaking force to watch.
An intense, wildly uneven psychodrama...Winter Brothers has elements of deadpan comedy but is only truly engaging in fits and starts.
