Sort of like Dead Calm, but with mimes. This twee Belgian comedy tells an absurd love story about a freezer-burnt hamburger cook who goes searching for the perfect floating piece of ice. The film’s conceived by circus performers who turn each scene into a tableau for slapsticky visual gags. Endearing and intermittently brilliant, but overlong even at 84 minutes. Not to be confused with S.O.S. Eisberg, for which Leni Riefenstahl climbed actual icebergs in 1933. L’Iceberg is currently playing at Cinema Village.
L’Iceberg. Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy, 2005. ***
