In a near-future world, environmental damage causes flash ice ages and gravity loss, and people who experience devastating grief and loneliness are susceptible to a fatal disease that suddenly freezes the heart--transforming them into human carnage that collects on street corners and airport escalators. On a business trip, John stops over in New York City to sign divorce papers at the request of his ex-wife-to-be, world-famous ice-skating star, Elena.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's like Kubrick with a talent-ectomy."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"There's something inherently frustrating about the illogical plot and the breezy vagueness of its message, which seems to be linking the global freezing of a near-future world with the coldness in people's hearts."
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"A chilly romantic thriller that certainly doesn't make the point suggested by its title."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A stew of silliness that's so ridiculous it's almost entertaining. Almost."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Dissipates its premise in wildly unconnected subplots."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Viewers who feel like they're not getting the point of the story shouldn't feel bad because the actors also appear befuddled."
‑ Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger
"Surely, Vinterberg was high on some inert gas when he embarked on it."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"Quite simply, the film is a bore. A plodding, uninteresting, incoherent mess."
‑ Edward Havens, FilmJerk.com
"It's too bad the plot's pretty preposterous and the moral-heavy mush is just too much to stomach."
‑ , E! Online
"A confusing succession of images, a plot with a vague resolution."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Doesn't add up to much."
‑ Gene Seymour, Newsday
"The Danish director Thomas Vinterberg's tries and fails to spin a quasi-futuristic romance into a political allegory."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"while watching it you might be hit with the urge to grab the Danish writer-director by the collar and shout 'No, it's all about story!'"
‑ Jay Antani, Los Angeles Alternative
"Thomas Vinterberg, one of the founders of Dogme school of filmmaking, has invented a fascinating futuristic world that is ultimately more interesting than the central plot."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Boxoffice Magazine
"Impossibly glossy, the film claims to be all about love but its heart never makes a beat."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
