Fascinatingly evokes not just the gruelling, first-person details of this particular polar expedition, but the waning moments of the entire spirit of romantic, white-European Boy's Own adventurism.

Footage from a remarkable silent documentary has been combined with new photography, music and a narration to produce an even more remarkable sound documentary.

Most of all, it is a salute to Shackleton himself, whose calm and grace under extreme pressure helped guarantee that not a single crew member would be lost.

Those who see Endurance, however, are not likely soon to forget what they see, even if they have some difficulty imagining how it could be possibly be true.

Aimed at a more adult audience than Adventure, Endurance has a haunting, melancholy quality.

The added material does little to diminish the story's epic punch and, if anything, magnifies its elegiac grandeur.

You become like a restless child at bedtime stilled and enraptured by the sheer power of narrative, and your skepticism is overwhelmed by a childlike greediness for vicarious adventure.
