Frozen * Juliet McKoen * 2006

Posted in arthouse, drama on by .

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.
