Rating: 3/10

Just came out of the premiere in L'Etrange film festival, in Paris. The theater was full, promising plot, expectations high up. Yet, what a disappointment. I admit it is about an experimental thriller, and budget is rather tight, but at least you expect some sort of coherence in the story. The film is almost unspoken, so that the soundtrack takes over like if it was also a play role, although even the music was out of swing, off line. Plenty of details impossible to believe, like the tempos underwater without oxygen, the fact of being eyes wide open on freezing waters not getting damaged, deep frozen fingers that can get cured miraculously concept though is good, yet bad resolved. Just as well its 75 minutes length made it easier to go through.
