Sydney Film Festival Day 12 Review How I Ended This Summer

Slow moving Russian Cinema set on an Arctic Island Weather Station light on character but full of intent. This film was a delight but a struggle to stay awake for (I blame it on being mid-afternoon in a dark warm theatre).

The weather station is manned by a veteran and a new-tech newcomer. Lacking in dialouge and character depth but full of fear and desperation. The film follows them through what appears ordinary events until some news from home sends their relationship into a tailspin.
The fim explores what are we driven to by fear and survival instincts.
