  • The film's interests are mainly relegated to wallowing in the frigid-starvation-suffering of its protagonists. show more

  • The glue holding the film together is Adam Newport-Berra's elegant hand-held cinematography, which captures changing shades of winter and the frightened faces in natural light with an astonishing intensity. show more
