This is one of the best films of the year, an unflinching lament for the human condition.
This is truly a great film -- easily one of 1997's best.
Masterpiece is the right word for The Sweet Hereafter. It is extraordinary: a poem of familial pain, a song of broken embraces. [25 December 1997, Tempo, p.1]
A little movie almost perfectly realized.
