Critic Reviews of "Before The Winter Chill"Hollywood ReporterApril 07, 2015
Elegantly cool rather than downright chilly, novelist-turned-filmmaker Philippe Claudel's third feature has a distinctly literary feel, as it plants its dramatic seeds very methodically before accelerating to a startling denouement.El FinancieroMay 30, 2015
An intriguing thriller based on melancholy, mystery, vagueness, ambiguity and perfectionism. [full review in Spanish]The Arts DeskApril 07, 2015
It's only towards the end that you discover that Before the Winter Chill could have been a gripping thriller. Instead it's a mildly haunting disquisition on the peril of the midlife crisis.Daily Express (UK)April 07, 2015
You need to be patient with Before The Winter Chill. It is a gloomy, slow-burning film that adds insight and intrigue the way an artist brings texture and colour to a painting.Empire MagazineApril 07, 2015
An affecting midlife mood piece.Sunday Independent (Ireland)May 16, 2014
All the performances are very good, I find Scott Thomas really watchable, but while everyone being a bit resigned might be reality for many, it isn't engaging.Observer (UK)May 11, 2014
With its chilly visual sheen and sharp bourgeois satire, this handsomely mounted and consistently well-played yarn offers disposable pleasures and rewarding intrigue.Independent (UK)May 09, 2014
Auteuil, looking jowly and weatherbeaten, brings bafflement and pathos to his role as the man suddenly consumed by self-loathing.Radio TimesMay 09, 2014
Another middle-class, midlife crisis unfolds here in the way French cinema does so well.Contactmusic.comMay 09, 2014
Reuniting with filmmaker Philippe Claudel (I've Loved You So Long), Kristin Scott Thomas delivers yet another brittle, understated performance as a woman who isn't always likeable but is hugely sympathetic.Irish TimesMay 09, 2014
A final ludicrous reveal drags us from high-end art cinema to the world of Midsomer Murders. Classy, for all that.GuardianMay 08, 2014
The all-important chill is tepid.
