Storyline

1931: in Ireland, a film maker hears of an aged ship's carpenter who knows the fate of the Hollandia, a Norse ship that set sail in 1905 and vanished. The old salt has canisters of film to prove his tale. We see the footage as he narrates. They sail south in June, 1905, with scores of Siberian huskies aboard, meeting no living soul, the crew ignorant of the trip's purpose, until they reach Antarctica. A mysterious Italian paces the deck; a polar bear appears, and the Italian, possessed, hunts it down. That night, the boatswain explains to the crew how an Arctic bear could be at the South Pole and why the Hollandia has come. Visitors arrive, and the Gothic tale plays out.

Wonderful film in all respects
9 June 2003 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Certainly one of the best fantasy/Sci-Fi films I have ever seen, a fantastic idea executed to perfection. The intermingling of archival footage and live acting to weave a tale of epic adventure near the turn of the (last) century is both compelling and inspired. I'm surprised this film has not garnered more praise than it has.
