  1. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Before Snowfall

    Virkelig et fantastisk manus! "Realiseringen" av det burde vært gjort med mere subtilitet eller simpelhet, for å underbygge de sterke temaene. Burde også vært mere spennende og filmatisk visualisert.

  2. eric gould's rating of the film Before Snowfall

    A young man's dark Quixotic folly drives an obsessive quest to perform an honor killing against his sister after she abandoned arranged marriage plans in their Iraqi-Kurdish town for Istanbul and points beyond. Siyar's unstoppable drive includes his choice to illegally border cross into Turkey plastic-wrapped in a petrol tank. Bitter realism pierces through a cinematic portrait of compulsion spanning across Europe.

  3. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Before Snowfall

    A young man sets out to execute the honor killing of his sister who fled an arranged marriage. Pursuing her across a continent, and befriending a homeless girl who joins, but does not support, his quest, his horizons gradually broaden. But enough to alter his course? The movie ultimately drives home the moral that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.
