Overview

Originally conceived as a TV miniseries (but generally shown in a single three-hour installment), this lavish adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen stars Bridget Fonda as the icy-hearted title character. Arriving incognito at the alpine inn run by a man named Wolfgang (Robert Wisden), the embittered Snow Queen makes it her mission in life to ruin all chances of romance for Wolfgang's beautiful daughter, Gerda (Chelsea Hobbs). To this end, the Queen exercises her magic over Gerda's bellhop boyfriend Kai (Jeremy Guilbaut), literally freezing the boy in his tracks. In order to save her beloved, Gerda must undertake a grueling odyssey through the Four Seasons (each of them briefly appearing in human form), culminating in a final, frigid showdown with the spiteful Snow Queen. After its December 7, 2002 debut on the Hallmark cable network, The Snow Queen was almost immediately released in a deluxe DVD edition.

This movie is an outstanding adaptation of the original story by Hans Christian Anderson. Modern movie companies usually tend to ¿dumb down¿ classics so as to appeal to younger audiences ¿ turning villains into humorous caricatures so as to not frighten small children but in doing so loosing overall moral of the story ¿ but this adaptation actually embraces some of the more macabre elements of stories from that era. To me, the two brightest stars of this film are the Snow Queen ¿ played skillfully and beautifully by Bridget Fonda ¿ and the talking Polar Bear ¿ this you have to see to believe. I would definitely recommend this movie to people of all ages as even the darker aspects are not as nearly frightening or disturbing as the ¿Wizard of Oz¿ ¿ those flying monkeys still give me the ¿willies.¿

I have not seen such a moving story for a long time... This fairy tale teaches us many story of life and how if we believe in our goals, we will reach them no matter how difficult or how cold it can be! The songs are fabulous.
