It's all about love

Thomas Vinterberg, Denmark, 2002

104 min.DK/Feature

Two lovers fight for their love, and ultimately for their lives, in a world out of balance. A classic love story with elements of Hitchcockian suspense. John and the world famous ice skater Elena have a modern marriage and have lived apart for several years, John in Poland and Elena mostly in New York. Time has made the distance between them grow, and eventually John goes to see Elena in New York to obtain her signature on their divorce papers. Upon arriving in New York, John is witness to a series of strange events taking place around Elena. People he once knew as friends seem not to be friends after all. The love he thought had died blossoms once more. And it's up to John to save Elena, if he can.
