Thank you for this film, 2 July 2011
Author: justthething84 from Australia

This film made me feel good. It was something different to all the mainstream movies you see these days, with all the overly done CGI crap. This movie was 'real'.

The film is set on an island in the Artic Ocean. The awe-inspiring scenery just took my breath away. From the bitterly cold looking Artic Ocean, to the enchanting mountains, it just made me feel like I was there. This movie was filmed using a Red SLR camera, and the pictures are just stunning. Some of the scenes look like a photo! This movie is in Russian and there are subtitles. The good thing here is that, although there is some good dialogue in this movie - there isn't much, so you aren't constantly looking down to read the subtitles (for those who don't speak Russian).

In the film there are the two main characters, Pasha and Gulybin. Pasha is the young, fresh looking guy and Gulybin is the hardened, experienced, older man. It felt like a father/son type relationship, although they are not related. Gulybin has been living on the island in the wild, extreme conditions for most of his life. An experienced geophysicist, Gulybin is set in his ways and Pasha, a young guy, is on the island to write an essay called "How I ended this Summer".

This film explores the relationship between Pasha and Gulybin, and the highs and lows that they experience toward each other living in a desolate land. Their relationship is tested and tempers arise giving you a look at the extremes of the human conditions living in such an isolated part of the world.

This movie is well worth a look.

8/10
