Movie Info

Roald Amundsen's dream of reaching the North Pole haunts him throughout his life. He is obsessed with the idea of discovering lands in this last unchartered areas of the world. Roald wins the race against Robert Scott and becomes the first man ever to conquer the South Pole, but in his diary he writes: "Never has a man stood in a spot so diametrically opposed to where he truly wanted to be." This movie will portray his all-consuming, boundless drive as a polar explorer, and reveal the tragedy he brought on himself and others by sacrificing everything in these icy wastelands to achieve his dream - only to find out there was nothing on the North Pole to discover.

A completely conventional biography. [Full review in Spanish]

In theory, this flashback structure is supposed to invigorate a plot that is purely encyclopedic, but instead, it interrupts it, breaks it apart, and takes away its intensity. [Full Review in Spanish]
