Storyline

A German expedition is going to the Norwegian arctic islands of Svaldbard in late August 1939 (back then called Spitsbergen), trying to find proof of the theory that all land on Earth 300 million years ago was connected, before the land broke up into the continents we know today. Just days after arriving in the icy waters, the tense European pre-war situation gets more tense, when Germany then invades Poland, and the second world war starts. The expedition is German, and so is a couple of others, but the captain of the ship is Norwegian, and they also bring a Russian crew, and a Swede and a couple of Brits, one of them is even a Jew. Waiting to be contacted by their respective governments, since they now are all part of a German expedition in wartime, they continue their mission of finding proof of the German Alfred Wegener's theory of Pangaea. The German government is then commanding them to commit a military operation to help sink a British war ship with 1200 soldiers, and ending ... Written by OJT

A mix of Das Boot, Smilla's Sense of Snow and Under Siege
20 March 2012 | by (Linköping, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Just before the war, a small scientific vessel makes a journey to find some fossils to prove the existence of Pangaea. A mixed crew with a female German doctor, a Swedish explosives expert, a Norwegian captain. It's soon gets claustrophobic in the narrow corridors on the ship as the news from the continent reaches the small boat. Who is to trust and who has hidden agendas? It's a mix of Das Boot, Smilla's Sense of Snow and Under Siege.

The graphics are nice as well as the gear that looks 1939. The acting is not bad but not really exceptional. There are some interesting characters for example Allan Corduner, a Jewish scientist, that get some of the best lines. The special effects are not Hollywood and sometimes feels like an old TV show in quality.

I think watching the movie get you a new perspective on the pre-WW2 mentality.
