'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).

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!

Quite fun but pretty lightweight in most ways, this should, perhaps, have gone straight to television and only the impressive locations ever make it feel any more than that.Published on 26 Aug. 2011 by Shrewlord
I'd never heard of this film till I read about it in the Friends of the Earth newsletter, and then seeing the excellent reviews, was looking forward to watching it. Read morePublished on 22 Oct. 2010 by Bo
