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

28 minutes in the film, the storyteller says the ship sails north on a wind from the west. The sun on port side suggests the ship sails west (noon) to north-west (sunset) - not the right direction from Holland to Nova Zembla. The sails and flag indicate wind coming in from starboard side: north to north-east. See more »

Not so good
2 December 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A terrible movie. The first Dutch 3D movie is a big disaster. It's overrated, the movie is to slow and the storyline to thin. The actors are below average especially Doutzen Kroes. She's not a actress, just a beautiful model. The beginning of the movie is hopeful but after 20 minutes it's over. The 3D effects are not that good. You must use these kind of effects in movie with a spectacular storyline. This movie is to boring and there is not one moment where you can say "wow". I know it's very difficult the tell something about the rich history of Holland but I'm not sure if that is what the director wanted. He just wanted to make the first Dutch 3D movie, that's it. Overall......stay at home and maybe you consider a DVD rent in a couple of months.
