Of course it could never be the same, but I had nothing to worry about because this 38-minute Australian documentary definitely captures the wonder and majesty of Antarctica.
In conclusion, this is a fascinating documentary of Antarctica. Yes, penguins look stunning and glaciers also do the trick, but if you're going to go to a place so hostile, yet so diverse, as Anctartica you should expect more information, more soul put into it and, of course, the magic that other documentaries such as Africa-The Serengeti, Imax-Alaska or The Living Seas display. Tauchen Sie durch eine unterirdische Eishöhle. And then there's the content - I was expecting a lot more. This is where the program shines and the Imax we all know is evident.

It takes you to the coldest, driest, windiest continent, Antarctica. There are long sections where the only audio is sound effects and music. Takes you to a continent beyond imagination. Overall, however, the film is unfocused and lacks purpose and direction. Re-live the brutal hardships, wonders and isolation of the first men on this magnificient frontier. Join the first humans to swim through crystalline caverns submerged within the Chaos Glacier; or drop through a weakened snow bridge into the jaws of a dark and deadly crevasse. Yes, there are some fairly cool scenes, but there are far too many boring ones and they are not presented in a very logical or flowing fashion.
Credits: Director of photography, Tom Cowen ; music, Nigel Westlake. If Imax is now the best quality available on dvd and Anctartica one of the unexplored wonders of our world, you could expect a visual masterpiece. Explorer Robert Scott makes an important contribution with his appealing voice and serene, well-articulated narrative. It took two Antarctic summers to film and the crew stayed at the American, French, Russian and Chinese scientific camps, getting some interesting footage of the scientists themselves and their experiments. Die brutale Härte, die Isolation, aber auch die Wunder dieser faszinierenden Grenze der Zivilisation werden so zu einem echten Erlebnis. When it's good, it's very good, but there's some lapses there in between the underwater scenes where it just looks like they're at the local ski resort.
I watched Imax's Everest title back to back with this one. This documentary has it all: 1 spectacular cinematography 2 good, informative narration 3 interesting background music What I especially liked was that the narrator did not attempt to overwhelm me with too many details. Support for the making of this film was provided by the Antarctic divisions of Austraila, U. We have scarcely begun to understand our planet. There was also excellent cinematography of seals and of penguins although I wish they had skipped the silly background music, which tried to be humorous while showing the penguins diving. You can also check other movies with the same cas or with the same writer and director. It is still a wonderful program, although I think I would have been just as happy renting it.

In conclusion, this is a fascinating documentary of Antarctica. This is a great video for those of us who will likely never visit this coldest, driest, windiest and last unexplored place on earth. If you are interested in Antarctica, I recommend this film, but you might want to turn the sound off. I don't think it will get dozens of plays like the Everest title will. Fliegen Sie in einem Hubschrauber über die turmhohen Gletscherspitzen.
I was a little disappointed in the wild life shots, particularly because a Killer Whale is never shown I don't think even mentioned and which is a major component of that ecosystem. In addition, the music soundtrack and narration is surprisingly annoying. Support for the making of this film was provided by the Antarctic divisions of Austraila, U. There are long sections where the only audio is sound effects and music. I was expecting something more on par with a National Geographic special where I would learn more about Antarctica, penguins, glaciers, etc. In addition, the music soundtrack and narration is surprisingly annoying and overdramatic. The shots of seals and penguins on the surface seemed a little distant and didn't have that usual Imax touch to it.
