The Ice Rink (2000)
Acclaimed Belgian novelist Jean-Philippe Toussaint drew attention to his directorial talents in 1990 with a remarkable satire on modern life, Monsieur. His third feature, La Patinoire, is about a film director who is shooting a highly symbolic film called 'Dolores' at an ice rink. He has hired a Lithuanian ice hockey team with which he is having enormous communication problems. His actors all have inflated egos, his film crew is made up of fools, and there is a politician on his back. But he must finish the film, no matter what, in time for the Venice Film Festival. A black comedy which is applicable to all absurd situations of life, but particularly those associated with the film industry, La Patinoire is a clever satire from beginning to end, including its title. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for The Ice Rink
Even members of Bruce Campbell's rabid cult following will probably want to wait for this one as a cheap rental.
Consistently lighthearted and amusing, but rarely takes full advantage of its setting or subject matter.
Not as subtle as, say, "Living in Oblivion" - but often enough clever and on-target.
