Storyline

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

Selfies
3 August 2015 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Positive: To whomever invented FF. Negatives: 1. Glacial - as one person described it. Well, if watching ice melt is your thing then have at it. 2. If sharing "selfies" with the world and former friends (used to be friends until you inundated them with "selfless") then the preponderance of head/facial closeups, mostly of our couple, will have you screaming for an escape. 3. If simulated sex on a bunk bed excites, there is some of that too, but it was pretty boring. 4. Not very believable expedition behavior on the part of everyone from scientists to ship captain. Acting was too scripted, and rote reading robotic. 5. Even the more documentary aspects were brief and cheap e.g. whale in ocean, penguin on land, ice wherever it happens to pop up. 6. Even the background music throughout the film didn't fit with the environment. Sounded monotonic like a cello out of tune. I suppose it was to represent isolation/vast desolation. I would just as soon go into a closet and shut the door.
