The simple existence of a woman and a young girl is unexpectedly disrupted by the sudden arrival of a mysterious soldier. Sean Bean, Michelle Yeoh, and Michelle Krusiec star in a film written and co-written by Asif Kapadia and Tim Miller, and directed by Kapadia. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Based on the book 'True North', this eerie movie revolves around three characters. Disturbing in parts, it tries to be an effective psychological thriller, but it failed at every level as far as I'm concerned. Except for the beautiful scenery. Yet, give it a go; it might be your cup of tea (my taste is not quite usual). I guess that those who are gifted to appreciate certain type of creative/artistic/substantial films are more bound to like this movie. Well, to each, their own.
My sister was telling me about this movie and I had to watch it. Okay, so they don't talk much in this movie, but the scenery was pretty cool to look at the whole time.
Two women, an older one who took in a baby girl and raised her pretty much as her own. They live on their own away from other people moving from place to place. Unexpectedly one day, the older lady comes upon a man who's pretty much close to death and takes him in. Everything starts to change from then on and the ending is definitely worth it. lol
Now theres a thing. A character study of two women surviving in the harsh icy north somewhere with reindeers and igloos and the like. Very atmostpheric, kind of an arctic Cold Mountain (ish), then Sean Bean turns up, characters develop and it all turns gothic in the last fifteen minutes.
Here is an interesting movie that continued to dwell within my mind several hours after viewing. Intriguing and suspenseful story plot. Great cast- Michelle Yeoh, Michelle Krusiec, and Sean Bean. Definitely worthy!
I don't know what it was about this movie but something kept me watching even though not much happened until the end. I think I just kept expecting something to happen any second but the second half of the movie made up for the first half. The end was CRAZY! I love Michelle Yeoh(spelling?) she was the only reason I even rented this but it was worth the watch.
It's a slow movie, and fairly predictable, but serisouly disterbing. I saw it coming from a mile away but that does nothing to lessen the impact of the things she does to those around her, maybe the medicine woman should have told her mother her daughter would grow up to be a sadistic, masocistic, murderer.
