Frozen * Juliet McKoen * 2006

This British film plays in a small fishertown two years after the disappearance of a young woman, not even her body was discovered. The film is all about “Kath”, the sister who is obsessed by the disappearance and tries everything to find her sister or at least her body. Slowly she looses her grip on reality.
“Frozen” is mostly a drama, but has some thriller edges, because on the background, the hunt for the possible killer is always present. From the beginning I had the idea that the clue was given away too easily, but the ongoing suggestion of the solution proves to be just a suggestion. “Frozen” is almost completely Shirley Henderson who carries the film almost all on her own and does that very well. The result is an enjoyable ‘mysterious drama’ with nice images, great acting and a realistic atmosphere.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
