Cannes 2018: Mads Mikkelsen Gives Everything in Survival Film 'Arctic'

Arctic

I love a good survival film. I don’t really know what it is about them, even though they’re all quite similar, I still enjoy every last one – The Grey, All is Lost, Gravity, Styx, Buried, The Martian, Life of Pi, 127 Hours, The Revenant, Tracks, Cast Away, The Way Back, Kon-Tiki. The latest survival thriller offering which just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival is a film titled Arctic, about a man trying to survive all by himself in the freezing, cold, snowy arctic. Produced in Iceland and filmed in Iceland, the film is the feature directorial debut of Brazilian filmmaker Joe Penna, and features some very real survival tactics. It also has all of the usual survival film tropes: just when you think everything is fine, something else goes wrong. There’s always some animal that makes things worse (in this one, it’s a polar bear). Rescuers never see them when nearby. ›››
