Movie Info

Greenland, 1908. Josephine, self-confident and bold wife of famous Arctic explorer Robert Peary, embarks on a dangerous journey in pursuit of her husband who is seeking a route to the North Pole. But Josephine is also naïve and ignores warnings from experienced polar travellers about the onset of winter. At great sacrifice the expedition reaches Peary's base camp. Josephine refuses to go home and wants to spend winter in the hut. Only the young Inuit woman Allaka, who lives in an igloo and knows about the cold, stays with her. As the long nights draw nearer, Josephine realises she has more in common with this woman from a different world than she thought.

  • There are too few instances where all of the film's different elements come together to deliver any kind of visceral charge.

  • Though it hardly wants for sincerity or ambition, Coixet's portrait of an arduous mid-career expedition by American explorer Josephine Peary is dramatically as pallid and lifeless as the frozen tundra on which it takes place.

  • The first half is all about getting into this position, where two women have to depend on each other. The second half is where the drama lives... but by then it's too late. Coixet has blown our goodwill.

  • On paper, [the film] should be bold and dramatic -- but there is an awful wishy-washiness to it.

  • This time Coixet may have bitten off more than she could chew, with the challenges of filming a historical adventure movie leaving her heroine sorely underdeveloped.

  • The evocative, philosophical, awe-inspiring story that Barros and Coixet so clearly hoped to tell is in here somewhere, but sadly, you couldn't find it with a compass.

    With an impressive cinematography that explores the isolation and vast whiteness of the Arctic, this is an engaging story centered on a cultural clash experienced by two very different characters who are forced to endure a terrifying glacial nightmare together.
