"★★★★ – a gripping ordeal with a yowlingly intense turn from its star – Guardian
"Mads Mikkelsen’s deft performance propels this stark and gripping tale of one man’s fight to survive in the harshest of environments." – Rolling Stone
Our second Icelandic film this month sees Mads Mikkelsen flexing his physical and acting muscles as Overgård, a pilot stranded in the Arctic.
Maintaining his SOS signal and awaiting help, when a passing helicopter crashes in a snowstorm leaving an injured female survivor, Overgård makes the decision to brave the perilous conditions in search of an outpost.
With stunning cinematography, Arctic is a gripping tale of one man’s strength of will versus the cruel indifference of nature.
