It's like Kubrick with a talent-ectomy.

Viewers who feel like they're not getting the point of the story shouldn't feel bad because the actors also appear befuddled.

A chilly romantic thriller that certainly doesn't make the point suggested by its title.

Quite simply, the film is a bore. A plodding, uninteresting, incoherent mess.

while watching it you might be hit with the urge to grab the Danish writer-director by the collar and shout 'No, it's all about story!'

A stew of silliness that's so ridiculous it's almost entertaining. Almost.

There's something inherently frustrating about the illogical plot and the breezy vagueness of its message, which seems to be linking the global freezing of a near-future world with the coldness in people's hearts.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Surely, Vinterberg was high on some inert gas when he embarked on it.

It's too bad the plot's pretty preposterous and the moral-heavy mush is just too much to stomach.

Thomas Vinterberg, one of the founders of Dogme school of filmmaking, has invented a fascinating futuristic world that is ultimately more interesting than the central plot.

The Danish director Thomas Vinterberg's tries and fails to spin a quasi-futuristic romance into a political allegory.

Though I like his ambition, his execution is overstuffed, unoriginal and often downright incomprehensible.

The deadpan weirdness occasionally slips into daftness, but with its brittle rhythms and puzzling ruptures, it's the sort of movie that could haunt your dreams for weeks.

There's nothing like the challenges of filmmaking freedom, it turns out, to deepen an appreciation for constraint.

Dissipates its premise in wildly unconnected subplots.
Harvey S. Karten

A confusing succession of images, a plot with a vague resolution.

Impossibly glossy, the film claims to be all about love but its heart never makes a beat.

Sadly, the movie's moral soon overwhelms the story, turning an initially intriguing thriller into a ponderous parable where the message is all too obvious and the medium is all too dull.

Irritates rather than entertains.
