'Breaking Surface' Is A New Survival Horror On The Norwegian Coastline
I love survival films that push characters past there limits in dangerous environments
Breaking Surface is a new survival horror movie that puts Moa Gammel in the freezing cold surrounded by water where she will need to survive. Joachim Hedén has already earned a four-star review after premiering at a virtual film festival by head critic Meagan Navarro, who deemed the film as being intense and propulsive.
A winter diving trip in Norway turns into a desperate race against time for two sisters when one of them becomes trapped on the bottom of the ocean by falling rocks.
For a better look into the film check out the plot synopsis.
“A few days after Christmas, half-sisters Ida and Tuva set out on a winter dive in a remote part of the Norwegian coastline. Towards the end of the dive, a rockslide traps Tuva underwater. As Ida surfaces to call for help, she discovers that the rockslide has struck above water as well, burying their equipment, phones, and car keys–they are completely cut off from any chance of outside rescue. As the frantic race for survival unfolds, Ida is put to the ultimate test of character and forcefulness. During Ida’s fight to save Tuva, a fractured sisterhood is exposed, and when all seems lost, the stakes rise beyond simple survival.”

From the movie stills, this looks to be beautifully shot. I can't wait for this film as I've always fallen deep in love with survival stories. As someone who knows nature isn't for the unprepared, it's awesome to witness stories of those who overcame.
