3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Arctic colours but less enthusiastic about the storyline, 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How I Ended This Summer [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Having visited the Russian Arctic I can confirm that this film gives an extremely life-like view of the harsh climate, the quite wonderful light and the run down buildings the Russians have to put up with, nothing like the luxurious American or Autralian bases in Antarctica for example. It also makes much of the effect isolation can have on those sent to such remote spots. Here lies the strength and the weakness of the storyline. In reality the young man, Pasha, should never have beeen sent there as he is emotionally quite unsuited to such work. His reaction to some unfortunate news is rather improbable in my view and the storyline thereafter deteriorates. The ending is confusing as potential medical issues are just ignored and the story ends with some uncertainty. A worthwhile rent, especially if you have an interest in the remote Russian Arctic, but I am not sure it will get much repeat watching. The Q&A session bonus is worth a watch first.
