What are people saying?

  • ZYNAB's rating of the film The Strongest

    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!

  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Strongest

    Une bienvenue restauration nordique, projetée au trente-deuxième festival du film muet de Pordenone (2013), qui se révèle être la première réalisation du toujours intéressant Alf Sjöberg, pour une harmonieuse comédie dramatique, jamais ennuyeuse, malgré la platitude et la monotonie des paysages du Grand Nord...
