Storyline

Larsen, an aspiring poet in 20's Oslo, leaves his girlfriend to spend a year as a trapper in East Greenland. There he is teamed with a seemingly rough old sailor/trapper, Randbek, and a scientist, Holm. Trapped in a tiny hut together as the arctic winter sets in, a complex and intense love/hate relationship develops between Randbek and Larsen, who are more similar than either would like to admit. A powerful psychological and physical drama set against stunningly bleak arctic scenery. Written by DJH

A highly watchable film
26 May 2006 | by eucalyptus9See all my reviews

After watching so many bad or mediocre movies lately, it was a pleasure to watch Zero Kelvin. I thought that the film worked on many levels -the disparity of the soft urbanite lifestyle to that of harsh, wilderness survival, the difficulties of human relationships in close proximity, the varying philosophies of love and intimacy. The film contained soft polemics about love, bitter misogynist tirades, and brutality tempered with affection tempered with harsh reality.

I first saw Stellan Skarsgard in "Breaking the Waves" and thought he was excellent. Then I caught in him a few ho-hum movies, and thought, yeah , just another B-grade actor. But it seems this kind of movie is his forte, he was great, as were the other two actors.

Excellent film.
