This survival movie consisted of many many elements of other survival movies we&#39;ve seen such as Cast Away and 127 hours but it felt new. I couldn&#39;t pin point why the movie didn&#39;t feel boring or overdone even though I&#39;d seen some of the plot point before. It all lies in Mads Mikkleson&#39;s character. In every other movie we watch and cringe at the survivalist doing everything wrong but pushing on in spite of it. In Arctic, Mads does everything right. He clearly has survival training and is putting his knowledge to good use. He should be able to get help no problem, but despite all his efforts, it&#39;s the world that keeps tearing him down, not his ignorance as we see in so many other survival movies. We route for him and grieve when it doesn&#39;t go his way because we know he&#39;s doing absolutely everything by the book but it&#39;s just not going his way. <br/><br/>It&#39;s also incredible how Mads says the same few sentences over and over and it means something different every time he says it. There&#39;s so much emotion and meaning behind his few words.

I went to see Arctic for only one reason: Mads Mikkelsen. I could be called a fangirl, to be honest, I don&#39;t mind. He has an incredible skill and even better personality (or at least &quot;public personality&quot;). He is humble and gives his whole heart to each project he participates in. No matter if it&#39;s a small film by an unknown director or a huge blockbuster from Marvel or Star Wars franchise. And when you hear him talking about it, the perception changes completely.<br/><br/>I used to love Mads for his Hannibal, but my true appreciation came after The Hunt and knowing how much he differs from both of the characters. And what was very important to me, he decided not to go into method acting. He wanted to stay himself for his family. So no matter how he loves his job, he didn&#39;t want to make the choice between that and the life of a husband and a father.After the introduction, I feel obliged to say why I made this fangirl&#39;s ode. Arctic is a one-actor film. Apart from a very small role of an unknown Thai actress, Mads Mikkelsen was the only face we follow for over one and a half hour. I couldn&#39;t have thought of any better choice for that challenge. Mads&#39; face can show volumes of feelings which I don&#39;t believe mine can. He can tell everything without words and this was the magic of Arctic.<br/><br/>The story focuses on a pilot whose plane crashed somewhere close to the North Pole. Through his routine, he wants to establish a connection with civilization. He clears his SOS sign, he catches fish and tries to charge a radio with the strength of his muscles. He spends every hour doing exactly what he planned to increase the chances of being rescued. But then his survival routine changes because of yet another plane crash. A Thai woman survived it but she got an ugly wound and is now sick. She can&#39;t leave the bed, she&#39;s barely conscious so he decides to save her by any means necessary.<br/><br/>The film itself couldn&#39;t differ much from any other survival one. Human survival in difficult habitat isn&#39;t a very broad subject and I strongly believe that cinema explored all of these emotions at least a thousand times. The art lies in expression and creating the atmosphere of empathy. Thoughts of what I would do in such a situation bugged me for the entire film and long afterwards. The reflection of humanity and our ethics was told by almost silent film and it stuck me with questions I believed I&#39;d known answers to.<br/><br/>Meanwhile, it made me appreciate the beauty of the icy landscapes. The cinematography work was very thorough, especially since they were shooting while the snow was melting. All these icebergs were magnificent and mesmerizing. They composed perfectly with the music by Joseph Trapanesse (known from The Greatest Showman, Oblivion or Straight Outta Compton).<br/><br/>To be honest there&#39;s nothing more I could say that won&#39;t feel at least blunt. It is hard to describe feelings, especially the ones which are shown, not told. This film has the magic of the story about how to be true to oneself and how to love one another, no matter how hard the situation becomes.

It&#39;s rare to find a film where the cast is only the one actor, and another that simply goes along for the ride - and pull it off.<br/><br/>YouTuber Joe Penna makes his full length feature film debut as producer, writer and director - an nailed it.<br/><br/>This is a simple film with a simple story, that effectively presents the battle of survival between man vs. nature.<br/><br/>The directing was perfection, the cinematography on point, the visuals absolutely stunning, and the score just right. Mads Mikkelsen gave an Oscar worthy performance - and that&#39;s with pretty much zero dialogue.<br/><br/>My only critique was the films 98 min length. Although the editing was good, and the pacing decent, the &#39;meat and bones&#39; of the story didn&#39;t fit the length. This film should have been a little shorter, or more conflict added to the story.<br/><br/>Nevertheless, Arctic is the perfect example of old-school, straight-up stellar film-making. Don&#39;t go into this expecting any Hollywood action or dramatics.. this is simple and natural adventure and suspense.<br/><br/>A well deserved 8/10 from me.
