It's what's on the screen that counts.

L'iceberg is pure movie making. Movies should be made by showing the action, not talking about the action. And what both Fiona Gordon and Dominique do is tell their story by showing. The two add a Capital S to the words Show

When Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton were the king of comedies during the silent era, moviegoers didn't care if they heard words or not. All they care about was the action on the screen: the visual presentation told the story, not the words. L'iceberg is made in the same style as silent movies in the 1920s. As a result, this movie is brilliant to watch. And I sit and watch a movie. I don't sit and listen to a movie. So to say, the least, this movie is worth watching. It's hysterical. And well acted, not only by Gordon and Abel, but also Bruno Remy.

A quirky movie indeed. Fiona, a fast-food manager gets locked in the walk-in freezer overnight, her family apparently didn't notice. I think she becomes obsessed with cold and leaves her family in search of an iceberg. Sound a little quirky? Very little dialogue, the film relies greatly on sight gags and physical comedy. The lead actress must have had bruises after filming. There is some very brief, non-sexual nudity. I found the film humorous and enjoyable to watch.

Quirky, fun & entertaining movie. I enjoy watching movies from other countries, as they are imaginative and don't need all the Hollywood money to make a terrific and entertaining movie without the overglamorous actors and actresses. The people in this movie looked like everyday people you may meet on the street, although they do have quite extrodinary dancing abilities which are very different from the norm. I really enjoyed this movie.

We have also seen "the Fairy", with these French stars. That was as cute and light-hearted and different as L'Iceberg.
Something quite different, when you don't want more of the same. You'll enjoy it just for what it is...a lovely tale.

Not for everyone, you need some time to understand the plot and laugh about it, however, overall, this is a different kind of movie that was very entertaining.

This is Belgian film (so the comments about the French and Jerry Lewis are not only tired, but also not applicable) that combines clown/mime-like physical comedy and stylized set design in style reminiscent of Jacques Tati. The pace of the movie may be on the slow side for those accustomed to nothing but Hollywood fare, but this is by no means your stereotypical self-indulgent European art house cinema. The performances are great (especially that of the lead actress who won an audience award in Seattle) and if you like movies that show you something different, you'll love this one. It's almost like a comic version of "Open Water" (without the sharks) in the way it explores relationships.
