User Reviews

 
"...recognised for its cold, yet cosy, atmosphere."
26 January 2012 | by iamthedirectorSee all my reviews

The award winning film, including the prestigious 'Best Film' award in the 2010 London Film Festival, hosted by BFI, has received recognition globally for its cold, yet cosy, atmosphere in a bleak island in the Arctic Ocean as a recent graduate plans to write his essay uin the baron polar research base.

As it delves further into the story, it can be blatantly seen that Sergei, a professional at his job at the deserted meteorological station is contrasted against a young college graduate, Pavel, whilst he resorts to his MP3 player and video games as he attempts to avoid the manipulation and intimidation of Sergei's presence.
