The Big Picture

  • Society of the Snow is a technically well-made film that grounds itself in the humanity of its characters facing an unimaginable crisis.
  • The film effectively depicts the harrowing true story of a devastating plane crash that left a group of survivors stranded in the Andes mountains.
  • The technical details and immersive presentation make the film emotionally profound, but the narration can be reductive in not letting the visuals speak for themselves.
