Peter and Chloe, a young married couple from New York, decide on impulse to take a belated honeymoon on-board a research vessel en route to the icy wastes of Antarctica. Not long into the journey, Chloe begins to feel neglected and betrayed by Peter, who is focused on gathering information for an article he plans to publish on their return about the work of one of their fellow passengers, the whale biologist Roger Payne. After an unforgivable betrayal of trust by Peter, Chloe turns their fledgling marriage upside down by moving into her own room and staking out her independence onboard the ship. Drawing attention to the poles within each of us, the impressionistic story oscillates between the super-confined interiors of the ship and the vast open spaces of Antarctica. In the end, it's not until Chloe and Peter are lost - perhaps literally, perhaps metaphorically - in the Antarctic ice that they discover how essential one is to the other. Written by Writer

Nice unassumingly film
11 June 2018 | by cheer88See all my reviews

I guess this one was never released to the major or minor medias. I found it on Hulu and was tempted enough to watch it.

Cinematography is stunningly good. The storyline is straight forward without complicated schemes involved. Apparently, that is the problem. There was in need for some melodramatic scenes to make points. It's too clean and fluid. Some details of main characters' past should have been prevailed into the current. It's not bad or anything but it's not impressed enough to become memorable.

I supposed the director tried to use Antarctica as a backdrop to display human behaviors. However, I felt the whole story had little to do with the location. They were a young and married couple. Disagreements and arguments happened just like others at that age. They were not exceptional in any ways with or without being in Antarctica. They could have been arguing on the busy street in New York City as well. The locations of where they were would not matter. That was also the reason why elaborating plots needed to avoid the commonalities.

The visual is good. It has the quality of documentary films. It just needed some booze.
