Cold Feet

Canada, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Jim Allodi

A professional thief and his lover revisit their past and find disturbing omens for the future. With a title like Cold Feet you'd expect a 'cool' film and that's exactly what you get. Not the ostentatious '"attitude" of a flashy style-driven, MTV film or the distanced, existential snobbery of some pretentious art film but the assured subtlety of an unassuming story measured out in tantalising droplets. Evocative and intriguing without losing the plot, this haunting film teases you along and leaves you wanting more.
