White Reindeer is compelling in many ways...Unfortunately though, her story isn't fully rendered or realistic, playing the same note for too long.

The Film Stage

It's one of the better Christmas films to come out in some time, and also one of the saddest ever made.

The White Reindeer is a deliberately awkward little movie, and it's a hard one to shake.

White Reindeer is too downbeat and maudlin to become a true Xmas classic but offers an interesting alternative with a vaguely heart-warming message about muddling through the trials and tribulations of our flawed and fragile lives.

Wow. What is there to say about this film. There's definitely competition between this, and Loveless Zoritsa for the worst film I've seen this week. I… More
'White Reindeer'. Three parts wickedly dark humour, one part emotional; a lovely take on grief. Hollyman's face conveys a lot!

While the indie film White Reindeer is an interesting character drama, it kind of loses its way halfway through. The story follows a real-estate agent whose… More
