[The Iceberg]

A friend recommended The Iceberg, and I am so glad she did. I hadn’t picked it out of the schedule earlier, but I enjoyed it so much! It’s a Belgian comedy about a woman who is locked overnight in a fast-food restaurant freezer, and develops an affinity for things cold, culminating in a trip to the iceberg of the title, much to the chagrin of her husband.

It’s stylized with broad (but not crude) physical/slapstick comedy, and it has a terribly charming framing device. It’s the sort of movie that never ever would be made in America, surreal and delightful. The more I think about it, the more I like it.
