Spain's “The Snow Company” is nominated in the “Best International Film” category. The thriller has already been a hit on streaming service Netflix.

Oscar-nominated Spanish survival thriller “The Snow Company” is poised to become the most popular non-English film ever on the streaming service.

In just three and a half weeks (from its release on January 4 to last Sunday, January 28), the thriller directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) has achieved approximately 75.1 million views announced by Netflix. The international title of the film is “Snow Society”.

Oscar contenders

The film revolves around the events following a plane crash in the Andes in 1972. The survivors begin eating from corpses preserved in ice in the cold.

The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September. Spain submitted the two-and-a-half-hour work to the 2024 Academy Awards in the “Best International Film” category, where it starred, among others, in the German film “The Teacher’s Room,” also directed by İlker Katak. Wim Wenders' “Perfect Days” (Japan) and Wim Wenders' “The Zone of Interest” are also competing with German stars Christian Friedel and Sandra Hölser (UK).

Views in the first 91 days

Netflix Top 10 lists in four categories (for English/Non-English “Movie” and English/Non-English “TV” (series)) are based on views in the first 91 days. The international streaming service does not disclose other long-term viewing figures. “Die Schneegesellschaft” still has some time to climb into the top 10 in the coming months.

For comparison: The most successful Netflix film in a category like “The Snow Company”, i.e. in the “Non-English Films” section (labeled “Most Popular Films (Non-English)”) is the Norwegian monster film “Troll” as of 2022 with 103 million call up.

The number of views cannot be exactly equal to the number of viewers. The number of views is a calculated quantity, according to Netflix, that results from dividing the viewing hours by the runtime of the production in question.
