IN­SPIRED BY A true story, this Rus­sian dis­as­ter movie sees the crew of a Soviet naval ice­breaker run into trou­ble with an Antarc­tic ice­berg in 1985. Trapped by ice for days, and then weeks and months, the men’s predica­ment is made even worse by glacial com­mu­nist bu­reau­cracy.

Given the story it is no won­der the film moves slowly, but at least the cli­max is stir­ring stuff. Sub­ti­tled. 2016, 15, 124min

THIS WOULD BE A TI­TANIC STRUG­GLETO STAY ALIVE
