Descriptions du produit

Die Gletscherforscherin Smilla (Julia Ormond) führt ein zurückgezogenes Leben in Kopenhagen. Lediglich die Freundschaft zu ihrem Nachbarsjungen Isaiah kann die unterkühlte Grönländerin ein wenig erwärmen. Als der Junge eines Tages vom Dach fällt, gibt es für Fräulein Smilla keinen Zweifel: Es war Mord. Weil die Polizei an einen Unfall glaubt, beginnt die Schnee Expertin selbst zu ermitteln. Mehr und mehr gerät nun Smilla selbst in die Schusslinie ihrer geheimnisvollen Gegner. Die Spur führt sie in das ewige Eis Grönlands und Dank ihres Gespür für Schnee kommt sie der Wahrheit immer näher - und die ist so unglaublich wie schrecklich.

Format: DVD Achat vérifié
... simple, limite thriller, sans effets spéciaux, réaliste, nordique, et qui date d'une époque où il n'y avait pas besoin d'introduire dans l'intrigue, des martiens et des recherches de vieux parchemins aux effets délirants pour captiver et faire passer un moment savoureux.
L'appât du gain et l''appétit des actionnaires suffit bien sûr à tout expliquer.... comme dab'.
Une histoire qui peut arriver à tout le monde à condition d'opiniâtreté. Chose rare. Mais le film date.... ce qui explique l'opiniâtreté de moins en moins en vogue 20 ans après. Unhappily....

Il est rare de voir un roman policier porté au cinéma en respectant le contenu du livre et c'est le cas ici. Julia Ormond campe Smilla comme on l'a imaginée en lisant le livre et même si la fin du film est un peu déviée de l'histoire originale, les scènes sur le bateau d'exploration et la banquise du Groenland rachètent les petites inexactitudes.

Wintry skies, loneliness and a little boy's mysterious death 22 janvier 2002
Par Themis-Athena - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
How many words for "snow" do you know? In most languages, there is only one ... or maybe a few, but not many different ones. But the Inuit language knows countless words for snow - different expressions based on its consistency, its aggregate state, on whether it's old or freshly fallen, and much, much more. And snow is Smilla Jaspersen's specialty; it's what she studies and what she knows better than anybody and anything. So when her only friend, an Inuit boy living in the same Copenhagen apartment complex as her is found dead on the pavement in front of their house, she knows something must be amiss; he can't have fallen off the roof, as the police quickly conclude: afraid of heights, he would not have climbed to the roof if not driven there in the first place, and he certainly wouldn't have run to the edge ... as his footsteps in the otherwise untouched snow cover on the roof, however, indicate.

Smilla, half Inuit herself and brought to Copenhagen against her will after her Inuit mother's death, is a loner, a rebel against society, hiding her fears and loneliness under a thick coat of armor of unapproachability and trying to be "rough all over." Unable and unwilling to ever lift that coat of armor, she takes refuge in science - her definition of longing are mathematics's negative numbers, the "formalization of the feeling that you're missing something." - Yet, this movie's Smilla is not the Smilla Jaspersen of Peter Hoeg's novel which the movie seeks to adapt ... although Julia Ormond's performance is not exactly coated with sugar, she is a far cry from the book's 37-year old woman who hates her Danish father for tearing her from her Greenlandic roots and open skies, and who hates the confines of the society in which he has made her grow up.

And as the story's protagonist changes in the movie adaption, so does the story line itself - unfortunately, not for the better. Even accepting that it would have been impossible to translate all the novel's subplots and subtleties onto the screen, what begins like a complex, introspective story about loneliness, the loss of home, and the unchecked power and ambition of a group of prestigious scientists, turns into your average thriller in the end - a huge let-down in an otherwise compelling movie.

Nevertheless, Ormond's performance as Bille August's Smilla (even if not Peter Hoeg's) is strong; and so, in all its quietness, is Gabriel Byrne's performance as Smilla's neighbor, the would-be mechanic. Atmospherically, the movie wonderfully projects Smilla's loneliness in the sad, gray skies and wet snow of wintry Copenhagen, as opposed to the crisp blue skies, white ice fields and limitless horizons of Greenland. For these reasons alone, the movie is well worth watching; even if those of us who have read the novel will have to leave aside a good portion of its contents to be able to appreciate the movie on its own merits.

A well-crafted mystery when taken on its own merit . . . 22 décembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette vidéo
When a young Inuit boy mysteriously falls to his death from the roof of an apartment building in Copenhagen, his neighbor (Julia Ormond) sets out to solve the puzzle armed only with the suspicion that his demise was not accidental -- a suspicion arisen from her singular impression of his footprints in the snow. With the help of another neighbor, known only as "the Mechanic" (Gabriel Byrne), Smilla takes on the head of a major mining corporation (Richard Harris) as well as the local authorities in order to put the boy's soul at peace.

If the vehement disdain that its critics have heaped upon it is any indication, then this movie may be a severe disappointment to those who have read the novel -- not too surprising since most movies so based are never as good as the book and vice versa. But whereas films of this nature will usually give viewers far too much information initially, leaving only a story line already surmised to plod resolutely to its conclusion, Smilla metes out the details sparingly. We discover new information only when the characters do and are blissfully kept in the dark about exactly what has happened and why until the very end. Due primarily to a superb story line as well as some noteworthy performances from its principal cast members, the movie grabs our attention from the outset and commands it throughout.

Smilla herself comes across as a complex, intelligent, and resourceful woman although she is a self-confessed loner and perhaps not the most pleasant of people. But by far the most compelling character turns out to be that of the Mechanic. Just as we begin to believe that he is trustworthy, one action after another sends us (and Smilla) back to our initial assumption that this is one ambiguous guy with plenty of secrets to hide himself. Yet we fall for his stuttering innocence over and over again.

Despite a few cheesy lines and some minor inconsistencies, when taken on its own merit "Smilla's Sense of Snow" is a thoroughly enjoyable and well-crafted mystery -- one well-worth watching.

An excellent film 29 juillet 2000
Par K S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette vidéo
To say that this film is a Danish X-File (and trust me, I know 'The X-Files' quite well) is to miss the point altogether.
This film, an adaptation of Peter Hoeg's brilliant book, is both a mystery solved by, and a personal journey undertaken by, one remarkable woman: Smilla Jaspersen. Julia Ormond plays Smilla with passion and yet with understatement - for Smilla herself is a mystery, a woman like no other you've met both culturally and in terms of her emotions and life.
Bille August's direction, Hans Zimmer's music, and the supporting cast add depth to this very fine movie.
I don't know what the reviewers were thinking - maybe that they'd get a shallow film adaptation of one of the many mere 'detective' novels that abound. Hoeg's work is literary, not genre, and the essence of the story is more than Smilla's amateur detective work, it is her reaching peace and reincarnation with her Inuit self killed by her surrender to Danish culture, and much more.
Watch this film. It's worth it.

Thrills and Chills in Greenland and Denmark: A Murder Mystery 12 décembre 2006
Par Erika Borsos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Julia Ormand plays the beautiful sculptured ice princess Smilla who grew up in Greenland but moved with her family to Denmark. She is now an adult who has a sixth sense about events and people. She is walking home from her job when an ambulance drives by, she stops where a crowd has gathered. She sees the body of a child lying in the snow. She knows the little boy. He and his mother, both from Greenland, lived in her apartment complex. The official verdict is ... Esai was playing on the roof and he accidentally fell to his death. Smilla does not believe it. She visits the coroner's office (wondering why an autopsy was required *if* indeed it was an accident). She is told "it is routine." She digs further, as she notes that Esai's steps on the roof are in a straight-line which indicates to her, he was not playing. Children at play run about in different directions. Her father is a local doctor, she quizzes him and ends up with more questions than answers.

A man living in her apartment, who also misses Esai, tries to comfort Smilla. Smilla resists. She later seeks comfort in his arms and they become lovers ... Smilla is given a gift from Esai's mother, it is a box containing a collection of precious belongings, one of which is a tape-recording. Smilla can not make out the words on the tape but takes it to an expert ... A blind man who worked on excavations in Greenland. He interprets the words for Smilla which indicates there was some cover-up by the mining company that had hired Esai's father to work in Greenland. He had died in a mining accident in 1993 but some mysterious event also occurred then which involved Esai.

When Smilla goes to pick up the tape, she discovers the scientist murdered. The door to his ship is locked shut. There is a huge explosion and fire ... Smilla narrowly escapes with her life. She goes to hide out at her father's home. She knows the mining company executive is somehow involved in covering up some mysterious event which occured in Greenland and that Esai was involved ...

Smilla sees an argument ensue between a white haired gentleman and Esai's mother at his funeral. It turns out he is the top executive of the mining company for which Esai's father worked. Smilla is certain the mining company is trying to silence her from searching further into Esai's death and his father's mining accident (which she suspects was not an accident at all). Smilla confides in her boyfriend who has a friend associated with a shipping company that recruits for excavavations to Greenland. Smilla manages to be hired as the laundress on board one of the largest excavation ships to Greenland ...

There are many twists and turns to this amazing story before the mysterious cover up by the mining company is solved. Smilla accomplishes her goals with the help of the captain's son, who makes suggestive overtures toward her but who ends up becoming her ally in the quest to solve the death of an innocent young boy. The dangerous game of pursuing the mining company executive and uncovering the truth becomes more intense and harrowing ... Smilla and her boyfriend triumph in the end, with the unwitting help of the Captain of the excavation ship. The spell-binding scenery in Greenland is astonishing. This is the first film ever to be made in the forbidding climate of the most Northern country in the world. This film will appeal to murder mystery fans who love a good chase and enjoy chasing clues that become more challenging and mysterious as time goes on but which come to a chilling and satisfying conclusion.

Powerful: One of the essentials; a must 22 mars 2006
Par Jorge Escolan Suay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The very great writer Stanislaw Lem wrote once: "Now days I do not trust the banner of `over a million copies sold', because real masterpieces are not usually best sellers...in their times, but later". Powerful words, especially when it comes to "Smilla's sense of Snow". A great book, made a great movie, but not "A Commercial". Not only a treat of an incredible international cast (Richard Harris, Vanessa Redgrave, Robert Loggia, Gabriel Byrne, among others), but the shinning performance of Julia Ormond -a princess among actresses. Made totally on site at Greenland and Denmark, the movie outlines and highlights the beauty of the Inuit Values and Inuit Life, and denounces the greediness of mercantilism that do not care about the consequences of their actions, and the collusion that some authorities lend a hand to the corrupt and the powerful. Make ready your home theatre, prepare your pop corn, your coffee, tea or wine...turn the lights off, and travel to Greenland, Denmark and the mysteries that surround the meteorites that have hit Nunavut and the Davis Inlet. And pay attention to the end credits, because there is something magic in the theory that something colossal happened in that Arctic region...and the Inuit's sense of snow, their understanding and harmony with nature, is what Smilla represents. The fusion of faces between Isaiah and Smilla, is a poem of cinematography.
