Storyline

This fact based drama chronicles the last journey of Willem Barentsz and Jacob van Heemskerk on their search for a new passage to the Indies. Due to icy waters, they are stranded on the island of Novaya Zemlya and have to spend the winter there. The story is told through the eyes of Gerrit de Veer, an officer on the same voyage, and is loosely based on the famous diary he published in 1598 after his safe return. Written by mahajanssen

Trivia

The real voyage started with two ships instead of one, but half way the second ship with captain Jan Cornelisz Rijp returned. The next year Rijp visits Northern Russia on a regular trade mission and accidentally meets with the surviving members of the first ship and brings them home. A theatrical element in itself, that was omitted in the story of the movie. See more »

Goofs

Gerrit tells Claes that the star in the middle of the belt of Orion is called Mintaka. The star in the middle is called Alnilam. Mintaka is the most-right of the 3 stars. See more »

Reinout Oerlemans fails yet again
24 March 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Doutzen Kroes is beautiful, yes. She is even beautiful enough to carry the entire movie, but not on her push-up bra alone. Director Oerlemans put her in the film to give the male audience a reason to buy a ticket. I did not (I watched on DVD), and so I missed the 3D-effects. Just like I missed the polar bear. Turns out I haven't missed anything at all. The original story is exciting enough, but Oerlemans manages to make it a child's tale, and a boring one for that matter. The reason is in Oerlemans' view towards his audience. He produces so much crap with his Eyeworks-company that he is convinced all people want to see is crap. Just look at the pictures provided with Nova Zembla on IMDb to understand who Oerlemans considers to be his biggest star: Oerlemans himself. All Oerlemans ever does, is promote himself, hoping that one day we will believe him. The media hype in The Netherlands when Nova Zembla was launched was utterly embarrassing. Look at Arnie go! Look at Arnie with the real Spielberg-beard! One Big Oerlemans-commercial, broadcast every evening for weeks in a row. I am very sorry for all the (good) actors in the movie and for Doutzen Kroes and Semmy Schilt, who are not actors. Just as Oerlemans is no director.
