This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
brutal silent nautical epic in the arctic!! this is the kind of rugged filmmaking that many foolish men (ahem...those behind The Revenant) aspire to but few achieve...many scenes of Den starkaste would never be possible to shoot today due to safety...they're that crazy!
