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 Harald Mayr Smilla Qaavigaaq Jaspersen is a 37 years old woman of Eskimo origin, who is living in Copenhagen. She is unmarried, unadapted, childless and irascible. One day her friend – 6 years old Esajas – falls down from the roof and is killed in what seems an accident. But Smilla believes he has been killed. Highly ranked people try to ‘convince’ her not to interfere, but she does not listen to them and tries to solve the crime. Her sense of snow leads her into a mystery with roots far back in time… Written by Allan Simonsen Smilla Jaspersen, a transplanted Greenlander, lives in Copenhagen. A young boy falls to his death from the roof of her apartment building; his death is ruled an accident, yet Smilla, an expert on ice and snow, can tell from his footprints that he was running from someone. Smilla begins her own investigation, forming an uneasy friendship (and perhaps a romance) with her neighbor, a mechanic. Smilla uncovers a trail of clues, leading her towards a secretive corporation that has made several mysterious expeditions to Greenland. What are they looking for? Were they somehow responsible for the boy’s death? We’ll find the answer on Gela Alta, a frozen island off Greenland’s western coast. Written by Marty Cassady When a young boy from Greenland falls from the top of the house Smilla Jorgensen lives in, she suspects that this was no accident. She gets in trouble with the government and police when she tries to dig deeper in what seems to be a big case…

Film Review

Bille August’s "Smilla’s Sense of Snow" starts off with great promise. An opening sequence that’s a terrific hook segues into an introduction of the character of Smilla Jasperson, played perfectly by the lovely Julia Ormond. Smilla is self-isolated, deeply unhappy, and unapproachable. Her only real friend is the young Inuit boy, Isaiah, who dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, and Smilla determines to uncover the reasons for his death. For the first two reels, this film is a terrific mystery story with good pacing, fine acting, and evocative cinematography. Characters with uncertain motives come and go as the story unfolds, most played by a fine stable of talented actors. But then in the third reel, the film collapses. I’m not talking about a slow descent into mediocrity here; I’m talking about a precipitous nosedive. Out of the blue, the story suddenly switches to an action/thriller format that is poorly written, directed, and edited. New, undeveloped characters ar…

This film starts off promisingly with a dazzling display of nature at its most powerful. However, the extreme unlikeliness of the plot makes this movie a bit of a joke.I'll admit that Julia Ormand's performance is strong, and, for me, that Gabriel Bryne can never do any wrong. The premise about an innocent young boy getting killed is genuinely heartbreaking.However, the connection between the asteroid and the rest of this saga isn't clarified until the end, and one must put up with far too much ponderous dialog to make it worth the wait. (Why was it necessary to show repeated spats between Smilla and her stepmother? Who the hell cared?) The Gabriel Byrne character saves Smilla's butt so many times he practically personifies the literary device "deus ex machina." (OK, we get it!)Was this film intended for grown-ups or for the teenage boys who read superhero comics?

I can’t tell whether or not they were trying to make a point with this movie, but it’s worth seeing (if only once). After a 6-year-old boy is found dead in Copenhagen, everyone assumes that he committed suicide. Everyone except Smilla Jasperson (Julia Ormond). She suspects foul play, and intends to do whatever possible to find the truth…even if it leads her all the way to her native Greenland.Like I said, it almost seems like the sort of movie that they just made for fun (or do only Americans do that?). There’s plenty of twists and turns, but I couldn’t determine whether or not they were trying to make a point. Oh well…
