“Tuuli: What do you do?  Saara: I’m a psycho…logist.”  This quote from the film BLACK ICE demonstrates the revenge evident in a scorned woman, who has found out her husband has been having and affair with a younger woman. The woman is Saara, a middle aged surgeon. Determined to exact revenge, Saara takes on a secret identity and becomes friends with her husband’s mistress, Tuuli. This sometimes intensely melodramatic film is both humourous and pensive, leading to a startling climax.  English subtitles.
