The noir Black Coal, Thin Ice won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival in 2014, but the US still hasn’t had a chance to see writer/director Yi’nao Diao’s highly praised film. The story follows two an ex-cop who digs back into an old and unsolved murder case when a new killing is discovered that uses the same specific methodology as the old.
