AMUNDSEN is an historical adventure film that recounts the journeys of famed Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen. A great arctic explorer, he was the first man to reach both the North and South Poles. The film details his life and the relationship he had with his brother, Leon, who financed and organized most of his expeditions. As children, both became fascinated with exploring the unknown regions of the world. However, Roald was particularly called to mapping the hidden world, especially the North Pole. His first attempt was postponed after two explorers claimed to have reached the North Pole. Instead, he began painstakingly planning an expedition to the unreached South Pole. The journey quickly developed into a race against British explorer, Robert Scott, to be first—and Roald proved victorious. Roald’s successful expedition to the South Pole distinguished him as an eternal Norwegian hero. Based on a true story, the film is an inspiring profile of a researcher driven to reveal the geographical mysteries of our world. (In English and Norwegian with subtitles) — R.R.
