Wanted it to not end so soon.
This is one remarkable film. I recommend that everyone see it regardless of how old you are, what your background is, what your interests are. It is smart, creative, incredibly well done all the way to the end of the movie.
This film is definitely the Mads Mikkelsen show, and it is one of his most powerful, emotive performances to date.
There’s plenty to admire in this trim, nearly dialogue-free 97-minute drama, not least Mads Mikkelsen’s raw performance as a downed airman waiting for rescue in the Arctic wastes, and the widescreen majesty of the Icelandic landscapes that stand in for the film’s polar setting.
Arctic is elegantly shot, crisp and unfussy, and seamless in its near-invisible use of digital effects, creating a persuasive you-are-there feeling that's rare in these days of flashy CG thrills. And it's the very old-fashioned movie magic of an expressive face that keeps you watching even as the storytelling ambles.
