“Charlotte Le Bon’s exceptionally assured first directorial film is full of light mischief yet heavy with horror-movie mood.” Jessica Kiang, Variety
“Falcon Lake is effortlessly funny and sweet in a way that kids themselves just are sometimes, and yet the low-stakes narrative never condescends. In its own quiet and ruminative way, it’s a sweet and sharp elucidation of the agony and, well, inconsequentiality, of first love.” Steph Green, Little White Lies
“There is a wonderful collision of genres in this atmospheric cottagecore gothic that breathes new life into coming of age tropes. This story about the spark between two kindred spirits is infused with the moody 16mm visuals and menacing score of a horror film.” Laura Good, SIFF 2023 Programmer’s Pick
