‘Funny ensemble movie, bursting of spontaneity and acting pleasure.’
‘…a kind-hearted, sweet film’
A group of folks in their early fifties, members of a band years before, come together to scatter the ashes of Kas, the band’s lead singer. They have all gone their own way, having left the wild life behind them long ago. Only Kas (‘Claw Boys Claw’ singer Peter te Bos) appears to have remained true to his authentic musician’s existence to the bitter end. The reunion promises to be like old times – fun, chaotic and drunken – until one of the friends shows up with Delphina, his new, far too young girlfriend. She is to have a disruptive effect on the gathering, putting the various friendships to the test.
The men and women alike are battling midlife crises, and their associated problems are dished out with a great sense of humour. Kleine IJstijd is in turns tragicomic, airy and serious. The actors and actresses (including Cees Geel, Ariane Schlüter, Hannah Hoekstra) serve up their witty dialogues quite naturally and with visible pleasure. The movie’s title is a reference to the American ensemble classic, The Big Chill (1983).
