A tale of survival
4 September 2011 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about how a doctor working in a research station in the South Pole survive her health problems.

"Ice Bound" tells a fascinating life in the South Pole that little people know about. In such extreme conditions, solidarity and harmony are very important in the group for survival. "Ice Bound" portrays this life in much detail. It also shows how Dr Nielsen is transformed by such atmosphere, and how her health problems affect others to push their boundaries too.

"Ice Bound" is a tale of survival, both against external environment and internal (health) conditions. If there was a little more drama, or the pace made faster, "Ice Bound" would have been an even better drama.
