As evocative and poetic as the book.
Based upon the bestseller by Peter Hoeg, “Miss Smilla’s feeling for snow”, it would have been hard for the movie to disappoint. The performances by all are exceptional, not least Julia Ormonds portrayal of Smilla, as icy as the landscape that involves (and evolves) the movie. The movie has an almost poetic feel, so beautifully is it paced, and the story draws you in steadily as Smilla searched for the truth behind her young friends death. There are enough surprises, twists and turns to keep most people happy, and the warmth of the two leads performances are in great contrast to the snow that provides the story. I couldn’t recommend this story enough to fans of the book, or anyone who is interested in seeing a movie that is not your ordinary run of the mill hollywood movie, but one with depth, character and genuine emotion.
Excellent Performance by Julia Ormond in well-made thriller
Julia Ormond has been known to be typecast as the woman in between or the center of a love triangle as seen in films like “Legends of the Fall,” “First Knight,” and “Sabrina.” But in “Smilla’s Sense of Snow,” Ormond is beautiful, tough, intelligent, and gives a powerhouse performance as Smilla a Greenland-born woman who has lived her life in self-isolation. She is bitter, angry, often times cold and detached and she avoids all human connection by pushing people away including her own her father (Robert Loggia) until she befriends a little boy named Isaiah, an Inuit who lives next door. Smilla and Isaiah bond and become close until one day Isaiah is found dead with what the police rule as an accidental suicide while playing on the roof of their apartment building. But Smilla knows better when she looks at the scene of the crime and notices that little boy’s foot tracks on the snow go running straight to the edge of the building. Smilla begins to investigate the young boy’s death and along the way she is acquainted with another neighbor and friend of Isaiah (Gabriel Byrne) with whom Smilla begins a relationship that she resists. I liked this movie with the exception of the “X-Files”-like ending, but this film is worth watching for Julia Ormond who should’ve been given an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her performance…flawed script, but an intriguing character played beautifully by the classically lovely Julia Ormond.
