Fascinating footage of life on Antartica
23 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I went to see this documentary mostly because I saw that it was about Antartica because I've always been fascinated by it. I didn't know anything on the subject of the French scientist Claude Lorius or his life work, but I thought that even if I didn't like the documentary at least I'd see some nice scenes of Antartica. It turned out better than I'd expected, I really enjoyed every minute of it. The old footage of the expeditions were fascinating and the new ones breathtaking but the biggest surprise, even to me, was the story itself. I have always been curious about people's life journeys especially the ones of people who choose unusual life paths and I really appreciated the little details he managed to remember like wanting to quit each time he had to take his hand out of the glove or how he suffered the cold nights just to get a glimpse of the Aurora Australis. I guess the first part was a bit more interesting on an emotional level because I found myself trying to imagine how living on Antarctica for a year with two people would feel like and the second part was more interesting for the story. The documentary comes to a bitter sweet end, bitter because we know we're hurling towards an unpredictable future and sweet because somewhere in the audience somewhere in the world could be a future scientist feeling inspired to help.

I would recommend this to patient viewers who find themselves fascinated by extraordinary life stories.
