      Audience Member Disjointed, no story line, maybe if I was really high, or really stupid. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Lots of things wrong but the main thing is continuity in the story. We go from frozen lakes and snow to no snow and back again, back again, back again, etc., her outfits changed back and forth from scene to scene, but the worse is that the firewood in the stack next to the wood stove never changed throughout the movie. Bringing in her manager at the end just lost it. Overall the director needs a review on how to make a movie. Don't bother to watch this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review roger g Lacks story, lacks emotion, lacks movement, lacks any semblance of acting. Never quite sure what the purpose is supposed to be. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice scenery views make it nice on a big screen. Powerful principal actress and a well-told story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is visually breathtaking. Also, I love Tantoo Cardinal, and she is amazing in this film. She really nails it (pun intended--but you'll have to see the film to get it). Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Johanna Schneller Globe and Mail Its rhythms aren't the usual movie rhythms, and it stumbles only when it tries to be conventional. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 29, 2019 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star An unexpected homecoming becomes a mystery story in Falls Around Her, a movie marking the first lead film role for Tantoo Cardinal in her 48-year career. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 28, 2019 Full Review Anne Brodie What She Said See our revered Canadian actor Tantoo Cardinal shine in this exceptionally challenging part Jul 23, 2021 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Cardinal is a living breathing embodiment of Mary's renewal. Her performance dominates the film, a fiery mix of experience, hurt and joy. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 4, 2021 Full Review Alex Heeney Seventh Row With minimal dialogue, Naponse and Cardinal give us a portrait of a complex and sexual woman with desires and interests, a sad rarity in cinema. Aug 21, 2019 Full Review Pat Mullen Cinemablographer Cardinal delivers in every frame of Falls Around Her by creating a layered, soulful, and lived-in performance.
