Smilla's Sense of Snow


A female scientist investigates the death of a six year old boy. The police ascribe the death to an accident, but the subtle clues point to foul play. There are all sorts of other characters in the film, with strange, secretive motives. The scenery alternates between Copenhagen and the ice floes.

The film was part of Barry Ronge's Art Film Festival earlier this year.

121 minutes.
No persons under 13 (Violence, Language).
