It's heartening to see anyone pull off any sort of comedy along these classically established lines.

Delightful in places, the surreal stunts are lovingly crafted. As a seaworthy film, though, Fiona's folly is more pratfall than plot.

I found it striking but often strident, and neither funny nor edifying.

Cute but toothless.

'Deadpan' doesn't begin to describe the tongue-in-cheek mix of gravity and cool detachment in which L'Iceberg's slapstick nonsense thrives.

Ultimately undone by its air of overly mannered preciousness.

It's funny and it's touching and it's weird and it's compelling and I think really gorgeous to look at as well.

The Iceberg is a riot, a quintessential French comedy with an improbable plot and an unbelievable cast of characters.

Once we're out to sea the movie goes swimmingly -- its three protagonists fighting, flailing, and often on the verge of drowning as their tiny skiff surges toward the land of the Inuit.

In the end, it's easier to admire than to love.

There's still a lot of wild visual style here, and not a few laughs. And that's a treat in any language.

Earns two adjectives that rarely go together: breezy and bold.

So much of the narrative takes place in and under one body of water or another that the sea itself becomes a metaphor for life and its circuitous route to absurdity. This is to say that I'm not sure what The Iceberg is, but it sure is something.

If the sight gag is dead, this excruciatingly precious Belgian comedy is less a resurrection than an autopsy.
