The Deep – Baltasar Korm├íkur

Baltasar Korm├íkur’s 2012 film based on the real scenario of a ship overboard in freezing Icelandic waters controls its rudder effortlessly, churning out a rather understated yet poignant tale of man against the odds. Where some films venture into adventurous waters marking themselves out as epic yarns, The Deep keeps itself to itself and lets the work face of an Icelandic fisherman do all the talking.
