There is not a wasted word in this quiet and contemplative movie. Deep, crippling grief overpowers Victoria,a doctor, after death of her young son. Her pain is so overwhelming that she runs away from her home and life to a small town, during freezing winter. She spends her days working and grieving. In flashbacks we slowly discover what really happened. Actress Annika Hallin gave us an immaculate performance. With small understated movements and minute gestures she manages more than many an actress could with a waterfall of tears. Her frozen face and sad eyes bring the devastating pain that her character feels to every viewer.Powerful movie from Norway that will stay with us for a long time.
