Don't Listen to Bad Reviews
7 October 2017 | by beawritingSee all my reviews

I was very excited to hear about this movie and made it the date night movie for the week. For those calling this a slow movie, it is that because this is a character piece, not an action film. This is not even about romance to me, but more how in a bad situation two people find out who they really are and overcome their fears. These fears are not about the snow, FYI. The director does not spoon feed the plot to you, he expects you to be intelligent enough to get it. Both actors did an amazing job of emoting with their body language and facial expressions. I do not think the other proposed actors could have pulled off this nuanced performance
