Poul Reichardt is seen in his first leading role, preceding dozens of films with Danish film's first lover as the star. Driven away form his loved one, the antagonist has to endure all the dangers of Arctic life and catastrophe.
Great for its time. However, in the age of special effects, one sometimes tends to smile unwillingly at the effects of the 1930ies. The vessel sinking seems to be crushed by an handful of ice cubes, for example.
Still a must for fans of Poul Reichardt as his role is much less predictable as in his films in the 1950ies.
