A 6 y.o. Inuit boy runs off a snowy roof in Copenhagen and dies. Smilla, a half Inuit who lives in the building and knows the boy, looks into it. What makes an acrophobic boy run up on the roof? The clues take her to Greenland.
Based on Peter Hoeg's bestseller, this film is set in snowy Copenhagen where a small boy is found dead after he fell off a roof. Smilla Jasperson, a close friend who lives in the same house begins to suspect murder because she knows that the boy was afraid of heights and would not have played on the roof. As she begins to investigate, she is pulled deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that could very well mean her death.Written by

On the boat while, listening to the tape, Licht tells Smilla that an EEG is monitoring someone's heart. EEGs measure brain waves; EKGs (also called ECGs) measure heart rate and electrical activity. See more »
Death is always a waste. But sometimes it's the only way to arouse people.

If you like movies about finding justice against a corrupt and overwhelming system, in which the heroine is both clever and good looking, watch this Smilla in action. It's not easy to find this film for rent, so I bought a copy and hope to watch it again soon.
