Cold love
16 August 2006 | by vitachielSee all my reviews

OK, the scenery is good and the freezing process is pretty realistic (even though no steam is coming from their mouths). But how do you treat your 5 months old baby in the deadly cold? Not by constantly keeping all the windows of the car open with the baby in it. Not by bumping him against any thing on the ground while carrying him in a sack and not by leaving this sack open all the time. Well, maybe a few minor details...

It's weird to see all the characters keep being friendly to each other under the worst circumstances. Man, this is a big crisis, and nobody loses his or her nerves just for once?? I know, this is just an other one of those God-inspired loving family TV films, but more down to earth dialogues would've made it a bit better.
