The Ice Storm

Ang Lee USA, 1997

Mrs Robinson's rating of the film Der Eissturm

Disappointing. Visually The Ice Storm has all the hallmarks of Ang Lee's best films, but the story is boring. The acting isn't bad. The casting is great. But seriously, out of all the subjects one can chose to translate into film, I think this would have been better left on paper. Like the storyline, there are probably hundreds of things you could do better with your time than sit and watch this.
