Movies have been made before with people stranded in the bleak, unforgiving cold (most recently, The Mountain Between Us). Since this one is European (made in Iceland), it eschews some of the traditional plot points and places Mads Mikkelsen in the frozen tundra with no explanation of why he crashed or where he is. A failed rescue attempt prompts him to leave the relatively safe shelter of his crashed plane and make the perilous trek thru the snow for help. Like this basic plot point, there are several weakly-conceived motivations that push credibility. Still, the struggle has its share of painful setbacks and Mikkelsen’s perfomance makes it effective. The massive amounts of white are beautifully captured and composed by cinematographer by Tómas Örn Tómasson.
