ICEBREAKERS (2011)

FULL MOVIE

SYNOPSIS

A ferry makes its way through the ice floating in the wintery Baltic Sea.

« With its atmospheric density Icebreakers captures what might be regarded as a rather unglamorous party, one featuring guests who meet through the coincidence of having fled the ice-cold darkness outside. Maximilien Van Aertryck portraits this night in the belly of the ship with gentle irony but without a trace of sarcasm, and evokes the feeling of a journey into the unknown, full of nostalgia and hope.« 

- Jenny Billeter, Visions du Réel
