“Aimed at younger children and includes pretty songs, but it doesn’t soft-pedal anything. Its low-key story is about friendship, but it’s also about loss, which should leave pint-size viewers with plenty to think about.”

“Jean-Francois Pouliot’s “Snowtime!,” which was co-directed by Francois Brisson, captures the nature of play and first stirrings of romantic love in ways that make this computer-generated effort a real pleasure….What makes “Snowtime!” unique, besides its pedigree, is the effort that goes into giving each child a distinct personality…French-Canadian diva Celine Dion contributes a song to the several pleasant tunes on the soundtrack, and on the whole this is a film kids will love.”
James Verniere, Boston Herald
