From IMDb: “It is the dead of winter and a poet invites his sons to join him at a hotel for a reunion. The hotel also hosts a newly single woman who has a friend keep her company and with whom she shares a room, strolls and conversations. The poet is drawn to the beautiful girls and cannot resist the temptation to discover more. Their lives intersect, connect and disconnect and potentially become a metaphor for modern life.”

Poster Rating: –

Review: There was no poster immediately available for my review. Should one become available in the future, this section will be updated.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: It’s impossible not to give this trailer praise for doing something unorthodox. Rather than letting the dialogue or situations tell the story, we get a sanitized recitation of the film’s assets: its stars, its director, its filming dates. It all feels rather sterile for what it’s supposed to be.

Oscar Prospects:


Trailer #1
