Nobody wants Nobody wants the night

I don't know whether the story was meant to be motivating or inspirational. Or maybe Coixet just wanted to portrait a strong woman. In any case, the film does not work. It feels sluggish with disconnected bits.

Binoche might be a great actress, but as we know, good actress do not save bad directing/scripting. Just having cute dogs in a beautiful landscape is not too much stuff for a film.

Putting Rinko Kikuchi (a Japanese) as an Inuik can only be seen as funny. It resembles the times past were they would paint a white guy red to cast him as native American.
