Small moments of beauty -- a helicopter landing in a self-created snowstorm -- don't compensate for the overall dullness.

In Ice People, director Anne Aghion locates the banal amidst the beautiful solitude of the Antarctic landscape and finds the beauty that emerges between the banality of the routine tasks of the polar explorers who work there.

With its lack of narration and subjective distance, the film is a uniquely meditative, psychological portrait of individuals who approach scientific exploration with the passion and fervor of artists.

Global warming is the subtext, I suppose, but Anne Aghion's film is really about the gritty, quotidian nature of science.

The film's hesitation, lack of rhetorical inflation and commitment to humble observation generate a tough poetry. Ice People sticks in the mind.

The director, Anne Aghion, likes to fill the screen with the kinds of lonely landscapes that David Lean once used to suggest another kind of desert.
