Review: "Society of the Snow"

Society of the Snow, Spain’s entry to the International Feature Film Oscar, landed a Golden Globe nomination for Best Non-English Language Feature. That could forecast a spot on the Oscar shortlist as well, which might come as a surprise. The International Feature category is often dominated by character-driven dramas with clear local flavor. Snow is a decidedly Hollywood-style disaster film backed by Netflix.

The two technical-oriented European Film Awards Snow took home – best visual effects and best hair and make-up – might be more expected recognition for this film’s achievements. A production involving a team of 800 professionals and a complicated phased shoot across four countries, Snow boasts an impressive and memorable array of visceral effects and sequences, and this is where the film truly excels – more than in character development.
