This is the story about a murder in The Antarctic, about a group of people - friends and strangers, about an old Russian plane that crashed and has been buried in the ice through the decades, old traumas, relationships and a loooong stormy winter.
It mixes thriller with a little horror, with a little detective fiction, and it keeps the suspense high even when things seem pretty cool. Cool like -60°C. Though romance is nearby and somewhat expected, I was surprised the movie skipped that segment of the story completely and managed to make it seem natural even with so much focus on bonds and relations. It leaves us with just the crazy people running naked in the snow, one shower scene and personalities that seemed strengthened through the visual lack of intimacy.
In the end, it's a bit of a sad story, but still beautiful, and as the credits play so does the Aurora Borealis in the cold winter sky. The filming is great. The cold is perceptible. The actors don't goof. Good watch.
