Cast overview:
Raphaël Personnaz ... Teddy
Evgeniy Sidikhin ... Aleksei


Fed up with the hectic, senseless world he lives in, Teddy decides to settle down alone in Siberia, in the midst of winter, in a hut by the shore of Lake Baikal. After an initial period of elation in front of the splendor and magic of unspoiled nature, Teddy soon finds himself confronted with the less glossy side of things : solitude, extreme cold, the necessity to find food, danger... One night Teddy gets lost in a blizzard and would be doomed to a certain death, were it not for Aleksei, a Russian convict living hidden away in the forest nearby, who rescues him in extremis. Friendship soon blossoms between the two men... Written by Guy Bellinger

For someone living in the forest for more than a decade Evgeniy Sidikhin's character has clean nails, and that is impossible. The ice-hole scene: Teddy's hair, especially facial, should have immediately become covered with frost and icicles. See more »


Teddy: In the city, the minutes, the hours, the years escape us. Here, time stands still. I am free, because my days are. Harming nothing, not having to follow orders, being happy with simple pleasures, adapting to nature. I left the vault of the city for a year in the church of the Taiga. A year, like a lifetime.

Stunning siberian landscapes
1 May 2018 | by chevolekSee all my reviews

It is an interesting movie about getting away from the noisy cities and connecting with nature and within. It has amazing photography showing the stunning siberian Lake Baikal in Russia. Which is the main source for water in the russian continent. Good acting showing a friendship between two strangers from different continents. I am not sure this happened to Sylvian Tesson in real life though, maybe the russian character was added from dramatic purposes. If you love nature, watch this film.
