Editors Note
Note Hans Peter Moland directs this bleak thriller about a jaded urban writer named Henrik Larsen whose taste for adventure and adversity makes him leave his cozy Oslo flat for a perilous Arctic adventure. He joins a fur trapping expedition with two other men, a crude, foul mouthed hunter named Randbaek (Skarsgard) and a scientist named Holm, and heads out to Greenland with them. Ignored by both at first, Henrik soon becomes the object of Randbaek's derision as the trapper regales him with imagined tales of his girlfriend's sexual indiscretions, causing the tension that has already developed between the men to soar to murderous heights. As each man becomes more and more frustrated with the other, their inability to rely physically or psychologically on one another hinders their ability to survive in a hostile environment and forces a violent and stunning confrontation.
Reviews
Los Angeles Times "...Compelling....We're kept involved from start to finish by a seamless blend of crisp, brisk writing, direction and acting..." 03/07/1997 p.F14
Chicago Sun-Times "...A film that delivers elements of adventure without allowing the viewer to indulge the kinds of pretty pretensions about human nature necessary for a life of emotional equanimity..." 01/17/1997 p.33
