Product Description

'Don't be impotent! Be important!' is the mantra of well-intentioned friends Brian Tongue (Rhys Thomas, STAR STORIES, BELLAMY'S PEOPLE) and Mark Bark-Jones (Stephen Mangan, CONFETTI, GREEN WING), whose Carbon Neutral, Vegetarian, and Organic expedition to the North Pole is the focus of indie Brit comedy BEYOND THE POLE. The duo hope to get into the Guinness Book of Records and perhaps score a little fame with their ambitious endeavour. Their inexperience and ineptitude is made increasing evident, however, when they come across their cocky Norwegian competition Terje (Alexander Skarsgard, TRUE BLOOD) and Ketil (Lars Arentz Hansen, THE BEACH).

Sorry I never review films but this was just so great and Brian and Mark (Stephen Mangan and Rhys Thomas) are so funny that I just have to. I saw this in a packed screening and I can honestly say that I have never been in a film like it since Borat I think where people just laughed their heads off. But it's much more than just a comedy because at a certain point the film turns really interesting and goes darker and suddenly it's not just a comedy anymore it's an adventure/thriller kind of thing going on. And so moving at the end. I think what really makes it for me (and everyone noticed this) is that it makes you feel so unexpectedly good at the end. It's not schmaltzy at all but it really gets you. So surprising, and warm and - get it! It's great! PS oops and yes Alexander Skarsgard of True Blood fame is wonderful in it - soooo funny!!

I saw this film at the Nashville Film Festival, and it was one of about 60 films I saw. It remains one of my favorites. It was incredibly funny, but not forced like some comedic movies out there, and it was very natural. The cast has an amazing chemistry. I didn't feel like anyone let me down in their performances. All around, Beyond Amazing movie. It is a must see.

I bought this and took on holiday to watch with hubby and 20 year old son. We were all rolling around laughing! I may have bought it to add to my Alexander Skarsgard collection of DVD's but this will be watched again because it's hilarious. If you like modern British comedy or dry American comedy then you'll love this. Stephen Mangan is excellent!

I saw this film at the London Independent Film Festival - where it won Best Comedy Feature. I'm amazed that this wasn't picked up for a wider release... the film is sheer brilliance!

The film throws all of the green / socially responsible messages into a bag, shakes them up a bit and presents them in a really enjoyable way. The green movement could learn a heck of a lot from this film as to how to effectively deliver core messages to the public without the doom and gloom that's normally ingrained in their campaigns.

It's certainly inspired me to be less "impotent"! Beyond the Pole is a must-see!

This quirky little film is a great watch. If you are a fan of Stephen Mangan it is a must see! Funny cameo from Alexander Skarsgard as well! The 2 main characters are very endearing. Thomas and Mangan give great performances along with the rest of the cast!
