Synopsis:
A genuine lost gem of 7o's American cinema, 'The Iceman Cometh' has rarely been seen since 1973. This is one of the definitive film translations of a stage play. Eugene O'Neill's masterpiece is often referred to as the greatest work of 20th century American theatre, centring on a crowd of wastrels, misfits, anarchists, alcoholics, whores and barflies, drinking away their troubles, and making grandiose plans. When Hickey arrives, for his yearly drunken bender to celebrate landlord Harry Hope's birthday, each character's dreams and aspirations melt away with a heartbreaking poignancy, exposing the human need for illusion and fantasy as an antidote to self-delusion and despair.
