Mads Mikkelsen is an explorer in this not-the-typical adventure film. He hopes to be rescued with a helicopter but, shockingly, the pilot is killed. The character of Mikkelsen is only wounded and determined to survive until he manages to escape the icy wilderness of the Arctic. However, the explorer has to make a tough choice - to wait for another rescue in the relative safety of his camp, or to jump in the unknown and go seek for help on his own. "Arctic" is a quiet film, composed mostly of slow actions, hardly of any words. Despite of that, the emotions and even thoughts of the main character are so well articulated by the eminent Danish actor that will not leave you unconcerned.
