Reviews

Drama starring Shirley Henderson as Kath, a woman still haunted by the mysterious disappearance of her sister Annie (Natalie Henderson) two years earlier. When she steals a security camera videotape from the police that captures Annie's last moments, Kath believes she finds a mysterious image on it. As she retraces her sister's last steps, she has recurring visions of Annie in an otherworldly landscape. Whilst Kath becomes convinced that her Annie is trying to reach her, those around her become increasingly sceptical of her claims. Has she really found a way to access the afterlife, or is she losing her grip on reality? And what exactly did happen to Annie?

I found the movie to be very well constructed, it verges on the supernatural but not so much as to require to to suspend your disbelief. Shirley Henderson as usual gives a great performance, and the photography in some scenes, notably the beach, is superb. ALthough I agree with the previous reviewer in that the ending can leave you a little cold in that it is unresolved it also gives the film an extra dimension as it is quite unexpected. Well I don't want to spoil it but if you enjoy good drama it is well worth renting.

I thought this film was brilliant. On the surface it is a quiet and subtle piece of work that focuses on a woman coping (or not) with the disappearance of her sister two years before. In actuality though, there is a depth that keeps revealing itself long after you've finished watching it. Today there are very few movies that I would bother to reflect on once the closing credits roll, but this is one of them. I also appreciated the ambiguity of the ending--I am so tired of movies that have been "dumbed down" for the mass market and spell everything out. Director Juliet McKoen strikes a nice balance between illumination and mystery. In addition, the cinematography is gorgeous and the acting is superb (although I must admit Shirley Henderson's little girl voice did grate on my nerves a bit in a couple of scenes). At times I found some of the accents a bit difficult to understand and the English subtitles helped.

A movie that I would genuinely recommend to anyone.Set in the coastal town of Fleetwood it is a dark little peice that charts(depending on the way you read the film) the decsent of one woman into obsession and then madness or a voyage of discovery that then has tragic consequences.The director intentionally leaves the ending ambiguous as a carefull viewing will show you.It is a pleasure to still encounter films like this....films that dont shout at you or signpost plot twists with clumsy "Here it comes" quotation marks but instead leave you room to think and breathe.For once outside of the classic directors and their movies(Hitchcock,Roeg,Lean,et al)we have a movie worth the five star treatment.A very good movie.

Kath is emerging from her grief about losing her sister and goes on an emotional journey to try to find out what happened to her.

Shirley Henderson is wonderful in the role of Kath. The supporting cast is superb. It's beautifully shot. The ending is ambiguous, I have worked out what I think happened but others might disagree. It is not simply a "whodunnit" or even a "whether anyone dunnit" but a study of a young woman in pain and her pain is eventually transferred to someone else. That makes it sound a bit gloomy and I wouldn't claim it's an easy watch but it is a fascinating one. I would watch anything by this director again.

I understand why Fleetwood was chosen as the location but it is not as threatening as it might appear. Dangerous if you don't know what you're doing but actually a fascinating and quite a pretty place. You can also visit the trawler used in the filming, a real, old, working ship, now come home to Fleetwood.

Format: DVD
Shirley Henderson has cornered the market when it comes to playing the emotionally fragile waif and here she uses her talent to good effect in a small film that punches well above its weight. Frozen is wistful, dreamlike, and solidly unpretentious. Kathy's obsessive search for her missing sister Annie becomes increasingly elegiac as she discovers that Annie disappeared in the `dead ground' between two surveillance cameras. This blind spot becomes a portal into another place, where she glimpses her sister. There are no flashy special effects here, just grey urban landscapes and melancholic shots of the mudflats of Morecombe Bay. In fact describing his movie does little to do it justice as its simple style belies its enigmatic charm. If you have to have car chases and shoot-outs in order to enjoy a movie Frozen is not for you, but if you appreciate a thoughtful study of pain and loss you should enjoy this film.

Format: DVD
Yes, I'm a big nerd. I watched it just to see him. Well, he has a minor role that is underwritten. He has seven brief scenes, of which five are around the 50-second mark, and two are just over one minute. So, there you have it. It's not his movie at all, or any other actor's because it is dominated by Shirley Henderson.

She does a good job, and I got drawn in. But one thing you should know -- it's a Scottish film, and the accents are almost incomprehensible for an American viewer, and you're not going to get subtitles in Amazon Prime Instant Video (though you probably will if you buy the DVD).

Trouble with accents aside, I found this an interesting, atmospheric story. Henderson is so vulnerable as Kath. She is in almost every scene and you have such a sense of dread for her. While it is fairly clear what happens in the ending, there are a lot of loose ends left unexplained as to what exactly was going on all the way up to it.

What was real and what wasn't? What about that first handful of sand? I guess there could be many different explanations for it, and we don't know for sure that our viewpoint character is a reliable witness of the truth. I don't mind the uncertainty at all.
