2.0 out of 5 starsBreaking Surface - a movie in Swedish
Verified purchase
First of all when we rented this movie, we did not know it was in Swedish and that we would have to use subtitles. Not happy about that. Being a diving instructor, I winced continually when the blonde sister kept making dive mistakes and her annoying personality was difficult to watch. I absolutely HATED when she killed a dog - that was a stupid part of the film which did not need to be in it. It was interesting for the scenery and I was hoping for the underwater scenery but the accident happened quickly. I thought the calm of the brunette who was down below running out of air was too fake. All in all, not a great movie - I would not recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 starsQuite good, actually
Verified purchase
Love underwater anything so I gave this a try. The story/the acting were good. I definitely experienced anxiety while watching, imagining being in that situation. That means the acting was good enough to take me there. It was worth my time, for sure.

4.0 out of 5 starsGreat film!
Verified purchase
Two friend discovering the icy mountain and the icy underground sea. Things quickly shift gears once a avalanche trickled down the mountain top into the water, and hits the diver landing a huge rock on top of her under the icy water. Great film!

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat movie - raw emotions
Verified purchase
It was thrilling, and I felt like I couldn't breathe while they were in the water. It had layers of raw emotions between the characters that were played very well by amazing actors. Beautiful nature that can potentially be dangerous was well captured and accompanied by powerful and sophisticated music by composer Patrick Kirst. I truly enjoyed this film!

I found myself yelling at the screen, then crying, confused, and elated. This one is worth the rental and a close possible for owning.
