A unique movie that uses real silent film footage to tell a fascinating, fictional morality tale., 29 May 1999
Author: CujoKey from Florida Keys

A unique movie that uses real silent film footage to tell a fascinating, fictional morality tale. I can't think of another movie like it. Scenes from turn-of-the-century films of polar expeditions are spliced together to illustrate the story of an ill-fated voyage to Antarctica. The story is narrated by an old man who claims to be the only survivor of the expedition (played by an actor whose narration was filmed in black and white and intercut into the silent film footage). Well worth seeing.
