It's not a bad film, but it doesn't have the dimensions to hit some of the deeper emotional notes.
The performances are uniformly excellent, particularly from the women....
Excellent performances and assured direction serve to keep the story engaging and dramatic in Petri Kotwica's third feature, which won five Finnish Jussi (film industry) awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Script %u2013 and Best Actress for Ou
A showcase for Finnish acting talent and a significant step forward for Kotwica, though the closing reels of Musta Jää dilute its power as a psychological thriller in favour of plot twists more at home in a soap opera.
A tense psychological thriller that grows gripping and suffocating as we follow a cheated woman carrying a twisted plan of revenge till the last consequences - and it is brilliantly directed, paying great attention to details, and with two amazing performances by the lead actresses.
An average psychological drama about love and betrayal. Unfortunately, they didn't focus enough on exploring emotions to its brink and developing chemistry between the characters. It rather swayed through the portions. There are some engaging moments, but they're few and far between. The performances were okay, but not great enough to make up for the movie's flaws. Besides, I thought maybe there's something in store for the ending, but that too turned out to be a a bummer. Yet, all in all, the movie falls under the "watch and forget" category.
It's not bad, in fact, had they put in a bit more of effort, it had the potential to bag an Oscar............... JK.
Psychological and very sexy thriller in a game of cat and mouse. What Black Ice tends to focus on is honor and honesty more than actual love. The partners are together, but it's never clear as to why. In one instance we find out that the marriage at the center of the movie has had all of its big moments marked by an affair. Maenpaa gives a fantastic performance as a woman investigating her husband's affair. She wants answers, but doesn't resort to petty violence or making a scene. Towards the end she does begin to crack. A more malicious character is shown, but at the same time we understand where the aggression came from. People justify their actions, but more people end up getting hurt. It's never terribly shocking, but the way the director handles conflict is very imaginative. The non-violent martial arts lessons, showing a restrained form of anger where all the punches are being thrown by the looks in the eyes. Stunning cinematography that captures the frozen landscapes, and a haunting and chilling score also provide extra atmosphere.
This Finnish film contains affairs, friendship, jealousy and revenge between a Helsinki gynecologist (wife) and young martial arts intructor (lover) who fell in love with their same guy - really entertaining, cleverly and magnificent drama story.
Two Finnish actresses, Outi Mäenpää and Martti Suosalo are fantastic in this dark and cold love triangle.
