The film left a huge debate in China
15 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this film is: Extreme Cold.

The film is based on a true story, which did created much debate when it actually happened, but when it was turned into a movie, there was a huge debate about the right to die. The debate left behind by this film is still unsolved but through it, it really makes everyone appreciate life.
