“Fargo” it’s not ………
Set in the snowy Midwest like “Fargo”, “Thin Ice” seems like “Fargo” light. The convoluted story-line piles on problem after problem for our somewhat sympathetic main character, played by Greg Kinnear. Alan Arkin and Billy Crudup are also involved in this “insurance caper”. My main objection to the film is that upon reflection, or perhaps a second viewing, things just don’t seem totally “Kosher”. I can’t put my finger on it, but sometimes believability is stretched like a violin string, if you can excuse the pun. The movie is entertaining, and certainly the script is clever, perhaps just a bit too clever to be believed. Recommended for fans of “Fargo”, “A Simple Plan”, and others of the type. – MERK

A Great Con Movie – Done Midwestern Style
The swindle, the bamboozle, the big Con. A favorite subject for filmmakers for nearly a century now. The game is basically always the same, but the players are what makes for a great con movie. “Thin Ice” (previously titled at Sundance 2011 as “The Convincer”) goes white-collar crime, the legal kind, just look in your phone book and you might find your own convincer, the local Insurance salesman.

“Thin Ice” directed by Jill Sprecher, is Sprecher’s return to feature films after her well received “Thirteen Conversations About One Thing”. Alan Arkin, returns to team up again with Sprecher and is joined on screen with “Little Miss Sunshine” cohort Greg Kinnear to create a thoroughly enjoyable tale of Midwestern simplicity and the everyday Con man with a silver tongue. An old man with an unfathomably rare violin crosses paths with an insurance salesman at the end of his rope, what unfolds across the frozen terrain of Wisconsin is a wonderful bit of storytelling The film has a solid cast of players, alongside Kinnear and Arkin, Billy Cudrup has a solid little role. David Harbour delivers a gem of a performance and the fantastic Bob Balaban is always a welcome addition to any movie.

Much of the effectiveness of the movie, which could easily have been a rehash of all the movies before it, is in its Midwestern point of view and ability take your average insurance man and peel away the layers to observe how the art of lying creates a life of constant deceit that will eventually take it’s toll. Mickey the insurance man(Kinnear) trolls 24/7 for a mark to give his sales pitch, but when he crosses paths with the simple farmer Gorvy the amount of deceit he will need to get the big payday pushes him to cross even lines he never dreamt of going.

A unusual relationship forms between the insurance man and the farmer, as Mickey is forced into a role of caregiver as he circles the rare violin in hopes of selling it for big money. “Thin Ice” unfolds through these series of encounters between Mickey and Gorvey and tension builds at a detailed pace towards Mickey’s eventual ultimate deceit. Mickey’s life is falling apart around him, ultimately their is no back-up plan, at any and all costs his existence is tied to the old man and the violin.

The film maintains a steady pace, each detail is thoroughly absorbed and clearly never losing sight that its all building up to, not if, but when Mickey will cross the line from white-collar liar to criminal. Although “Thin Ice” is a fascinating take on the relationship between a simple Midwest farmer and convincing insurance man, it is foremost a story of the consequences of lying and when those lies will come back to haunt you.

Thus the story takes a dramatic turn as Mickey unwillingly teams with a local ex-convict locksmith(Billy Cudrup) to break into Gorvy’s home to get his prize violin. Things don’t go at all as planned and soon Mickey is dealing with a whole nother type of crime. The killing kind. What unfolds through the second half of the movie is a masterful touch of high tension and bumbling amateur criminal misbehaving.

Though the film will undoubtedly be compared to a few other con movies, Fargo comes to mind though that’s primarily just scenery correlation, “Thin Ice” is very much original. The strength of this film is the wonderfully acted script that is sharp and nearly without flaw. The movie could not have had better pieces then Kinnear and Arkin who are brilliantly matched and thoughtfully reminiscent of their real life counterparts.

This thoroughly engaging and captivating little tale works from beginning to end. If one were to focus on possible weaknesses it would only be that true to it’s Midwestern stylings its not overly flashy Nor particularly gritty compared to slicker studio productions. That being said “Thin Ice” is completely its own film and gives very little to dislike.
