"I'm with Dave Calhoun on this one. I found Stephanie's phone call to Ali after the accident both inexplicable and implausible. Notwithstanding superb performances by both Cotillard and Schoenaerts I found their relationship difficult to believe in. The final plot contrivance of the child falling through ice that only moments before had been able to bear the father's weight rang false which undermined the final redemptive scenes. The sene that touched me most was the one where Stephanie stand outside the aquarium tank and summons an orca to come to her. I found that relationship more believable than the human ones depicted. I give three stars because of the undeniable quality of the acting."
