  1. Ella Dawson-Gorton's rating of the film Snow Canon

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Snow Canon

    A girl is on the verge of adulthood and discover that she likes her lesbian babysitter more than boys. It sounds like the perfect plot for an XXX-rated flick. Well, it tries to make that concept a little more artsy but the fact is that take away the good-looking girls and the well-shot cinematography the movie never takes off as either a coming-of-age story or is erotic enough.

  3. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Snow Canon

    2.8 stars. I really like Diop's sensibility, but on balance I found this somewhat squicky, rather than sensitive, though I am a sucker for tacky underground cave illuminations. This is basically how I'd imagine 'Persona' as early '90s young adult fiction. Maybe Diop could adapt one of the 'Point Horror' books!!!

  4. Jeremy's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Nice scenery, but not much else to say about this. Felt like a long half hour.

  5. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Snow Canon

    What initially seems to be a conventional narrative soon reveals itself to be more symbolic and sensual than we expect. An uneven film where poetic and prosaic elements sit uncomfortably together, but Diop's unusual depiction of sexual awakening is not without ambition or imagination.

  6. ApexCactus's rating of the film Snow Canon

    A girl is a gun they say, this was a really nice short film, as cliché as the story may be, it's the delicacy of its portrayal that made it special to me, isolation is the antagonist here, and Vania a heroine of subtle emotions, I really enjoyed it.

  7. Juan Javier's rating of the film Snow Canon

  8. Zanna Walsh's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Not for me. I did feel the teen angst and hormonal madness, but only really in the "texting" scenes. The banal chat about who you might sleep with, when you know you never will. But, just a tad dull. No humour, and too many shots of mountains.

  9. fecalis's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Un film français où on n’a pas grand chose à dire,c’est triste et ennuyeux.

  10. dionysus67's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Not without merits short about female sexuality. Restrainingly sensual, Diop's film displays some genuinely cinematic moments, like, for instance, the exterior mountain shots (and how these are edited), the shots of the apartment following the babysitter's departure and the fragmentary shots of the female body. On the other hand, it seems unsure of its intentions and wastes itself in some superficial communincation.

  11. joao.crepschi's rating of the film Snow Canon

    O insondável do desejo lésbico...

  12. Superfrog's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Not terrible but utterly forgettable if with a couple of good photographic moments. Girls kissing do not make a script, a remark that should be passed on the many gay film event organiser, as a matter of fact.

  13. Maria's rating of the film Snow Canon

    age gap made me really uncomfortable at the end

  14. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Snow Canon

    A slight, but effective, short film from writer-director Mati Diop that looks at adolescent behaviour and urges, specifically those of a young woman named Vanina (Nilaya Bal, excellent in her first acting role).

  15. easypz's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Naliya Bal perf elevates to a point. Vulnerability, conflicting emotion. Yet, a sense the film doesn't make the most of it. Impact, insight feel lacking. Camera & composition not the most interesting. Cave scene/alps shots derivative. Implied class contrast untapped til late burst. Most 1/2 hour shorts are too long; this one seems less understated than dilute. A more exact, imaginative POV could do more in less time.

  16. tres-bien's rating of the film Snow Canon

    A relatively undemanding and cliché driven story about teenage infatuation and sexual awakening. Some nice landscape shots and decent enough acting, but doesn't really expand on a relatively well-worn formula.

  17. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Warm and tender short on flowering female attraction.

  18. captainfez's rating of the film Snow Canon

    I'm not sure babysitting is the career for her.

  19. EdieEmm's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Back then (sometimes still now) romance was the sensual exploration of one's own power. I got that in a way I hadn't till seeing this. Diop, here & in Atlantiques, has an uncanny way of making my memory of the film code in the same way as a memory of my own might, so that the empathy comes almost after the fact. It sets in... Not insignificant to cast two women of colour in a romance, and with a crew of mostly women.

  20. Gen Ueda's rating of the film Snow Canon

    If you mix the faces of the two first actors, I'm sure you'll get Benjamin Biolay's. Otherwise, the film looks pretty cliché at first but then, the actors' play, the silences, the representations of her thoughts give rise to a dreamlike atmosphere. PS : The english subs are awful.

  21. Andrew's rating of the film Snow Canon

    Enigmatic realism, presenting us in the midst of a complex web of psychological countercurrents. Burning with an awakening sensuality, it counterpoises a rousing sexuality against both a sophisticated femininity and the cold, forbidding austerity of the Alpine slopes. It evolves into a mesmeric modern fairytale, with all the mystery, symbolism and latent sexuality of the Brothers Grimm. Bold, evocative and haunting.

  24. Rex Freeman's rating of the film Snow Canon

    I'm just here for the OTT Mubi review of how this mute tale of a horny rich kid amid nice scenery represents the inner mountain of magma in all of us. Or whatever.
