The story has its slow spots and melodramatic excesses — did there really need to be an avalanche? — but Mr. Kormakur keeps the mystery legible and never lets the tension sag too far. And while he’s no John Ford, he and his cinematographers make good use of the setting — the neat houses stepping up the sides of the fjord, the gigantic ferry looming over the town, the cars buried in drifts of snow (an essential plot point that New York City dwellers will enjoy). Whatever your winter is like, Andri’s is probably worse.
(Mike Hale, New York Times, 2017)
