Critic Reviews for Winter Sleepers

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (4)

A strong, atmospheric companion piece to Tykwer's Run Lola Run and a precursor to Memento.

January 17, 2003 | Rating: 4/5

Some of the in-your-face techniques that made Lola such a wild ride are used in Winter Sleepers, but in small doses and in service of a much more complex story.

February 26, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Picture a cross between 'Run Lola Run' and 'The Sweet Hereafter.' If you can do such a thing, you have an idea of what Winter Sleepers is like.

March 25, 2001 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Confirms that Tom Tykwer is one of the most assured and effective young filmmakers from abroad storming our shores.
