Clint is a dead man who lives alone in a frozen tundra. However, this isolation cannot bring either evasion or peace. One night, he begins a journey where he must confront his dreams, memories, and visions, crossing the darkness into the light.Written by

Before this film Willem Dafoe and Abel Ferrara worked together as an actor/director team on 'New Rose Hotel' (1998), 'Go Go Tales' (2007), '4:44 Last Day on Earth' (2011), Pasolini (2014) and 'Tomasso' (2018). On top of that they also acted together in the experimental film 'Sculpt' (2016). See more »
I saw Siberia at the Berlinale (Berlin Film Festival) and man, let me put it like this - it definately was an experience. Dafoe once again does a great job and there are some beautiful shots of the landscape but what striked me the most was Ferrara's symbolism. Tho it's not at the level of Jodorowsky it leaves enough space for interpretation which makes this movie great to talk about afterwards. Personally I liked the second half of the movie better, maybe because it took some time to establish the mood or maybe it is because there barely are any dialogues in the first 20 minutes. I liked the film, it was an interesting (tho at times disturbing) watch.
And yeah, the fish kills it.
