Fiona is the manager of a fast-food restaurant. She lives comfortably with her family in the suburbs. In other words, Fiona is happy, until the day she accidentally gets locked into a walk-in freezer. She escapes the next morning, half frozen and barely alive, only to realize that her husband and two children didn't even notice she was missing. When Fiona develops an obsession for everything cold and icy (snow, polar bears, refrigerators, icebergs) she drops everything, climbs into a frozen goods delivery truck and leaves home, for a real iceberg.

The comedy, choreography and slapstick against stage like settings and imaginative scenarios really works well. Enjoyable, fun and really worth the watch.

The supporting actors are delightful too. Yes, it is colorful emotionally too.

Like all real humor, there is a bedrock of truth.

Ce n'était qu'un film - c'était une danse. J'ai souvent l'impression d'être là, en face des acteurs. Et comme Bunean à déjà noté, les couleurs sont énormes. Chaque perspective est à la fois simple et pleine de soucie pour les détails. J'ai en beaucoup, beaucoup aimé.

I absolutely loved that colorful, quirky, unique art object. I have seen RUMBA many times, and what a joy it was to discover that the duo Gordon/Abel had done other films! I found in L'iceberg the same poetry, humor and freedom that had delighted me so much before. They have a unique voice, a unique style, and it's absolutely entrancing.

J'ai adoré cet objet d'art décalé, coloré, absolument unique. Je me suis délecté de leur opus subséquent - RUMBA - plusieurs fois, et quelle ne fut pas ma joie de découvrir que leur filmographie ne s'y arrêtait pas! Je retrouve la poésie, l'humour, la grande liberté, sans compter l'univers graphique et visuel si coloré, si étudié, si singulier qui qui m'avaient tant ravie lors de notre première rencontre. Un film rare dans lequel il fait plaisir de plonger et duquel on ressort joyeux.

What one want and get are two different issues, good story.
