Storyline

In this adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's longest story, the beautiful Snow Queen has captured two children and now keeps them apart. She has inserted a sliver of her own special ice into the eye of the boy, so that his heart will turn to ice and will be a proper match for hers. The boy's sister, meanwhile, has won free and attempts to find her brother. When she does, the warmth of her love for him melts his frozen heart and defeats the Snow Queen decisively.

After many adaptations of Andersen fairy tale, it seems not real posible for a new film to give something new. but "Lumikuningatar" does that. in admirable manner. first virtue - the actors and theirs good performances. the second - the landscapes. not the last - the cultural references. and the tension. and, sure, the Snow Queen, remembering Kabuku theater. a film who gives new sparkles to a well known story. in delicate, precise, convincing manner. and this defines this film who preserves the flavor of old text, proposing its individuality as the inspied way for enrichi the universe fascinating generation by generation. it is not easy to say than is the best adaptation or a memorable one. it is enough to define it as remarkable. because this is the right word for this real beautiful film.
