Trivia

This was Michael Nyqvist's final film. He died of lung cancer in June 2017, a month before shooting was finished. However, according to The Guardian, Nyqvist completed his scenes. See more »

Goofs

Although the film implies that the 23 survivors of the initial blasts lived up to a week, just dying before rescue, they had actually all died within 11 hours. No rescue attempts had even begun at that point. See more »

Quotes

Tanya Averina: [eulogizing] My Mikhail said that those who've gone to sea are forever changed. He said that's why they're different from the rest of us, tied one to the other, by the sea.

A true attempt at humanity
8 March 2019 | by gelf-46258See all my reviews

Above all this film is very human. It appears both a criticism on humanity (society - at one point or another) and human frailty, and an uplifting story at the same time to show the best of humanity and humans as a whole. Their fears, courage, anger, hope, et cetera. On the whole it seems to follow the best of classic Russian literature in its themes.

Factual this film is not. Up to a point. The happenings aboard ship are mostly speculative. In this sense it follows other sea-disaster films such as Titanic. Politically sensitive perhaps, given the current Russian political climate, in relation to the west. But this film does not deserve to become a political tool for any side in the new cold war (more tepid, if you ask me, anyway). At worst, or best, this film is a single insight into how the Russia of today became the Russia it is today.

What will stay with me is the 90 year old Max von Sydow in his semi- villain role. He truly embodies his part. With only two Academy Award nominations to his name, I do hope he receives a lifetime achievement award before he leaves us (hopefully many years from now). Regretfully one of the last greats. Best wishes and high regards.

As a film, this seems to be a mostly Wallonian production (?), this film rises above its station. It makes me wonder what influence Luc Besson had?
