Product Description

Product Description

Biologist and filmmaker Jean Lemire, accompanied aboard the schooner Sedna IV by a handpicked team of scientists and filmmakers, dared to experience climate change and its consequences within Antarctica’s icy grip.More than a full year of daring, isolation, danger, intensity: it was a spectacular adventure full of risks and triumphs, joys and perils. The Last Continent (Le Dernier Continent) is a testament to a human adventure at once chilling and inspiring. The film, narrated in the English-language version by Canadian film star Donald Sutherland, alternates between captivating images of deep serenity and spine-tingling sequences in which the ship’s crew finds itself, time and again, on the edge of catastrophe. Before our eyes, the crew members live out their most exhilarating highs and grimmest lows. With The Last Continent, Jean Lemire earns the viewer’s admiration on every level: majestic landscapes, fascinating wildlife, a courageous and sensitive crew, relevant and troubling environmental information, exceptional filmmaking. The film is a worthy tribute to the courageous Sedna IV mission it documents, a voyage to the heart of the last continent: Antarctica.

-----

Le biologiste et cinéaste Jean Lemire, accompagné d'un équipage de scientifiques et de cinéastes triés sur le volet, a osé aller vivre les changements climatiques et ses conséquences dans les griffes glacées du continent Antarctique sur le voilier Sedna IV. Plus d'une année entière d'audace, d'isolement, de dangers, d'engagement… Une aventure exemplaire où s'ajoutent aux risques et aux rebondissements, les joies et les menaces. Prêts à tout, ils ont affronté pire encore! Le Dernier Continent témoigne de cette aventure humaine qui suscite autant l'effroi que l'admiration. Le film alterne entre des images d'une beauté émouvante de sérénité et des séquences qui glacent de terreur aux moments où l'équipage du voilier se retrouve à répétition au bord de la catastrophe. Chacun vit devant nous ses enthousiasmes et ses creux de vague. Jean Lemire réussit, dans Le Dernier Continent, à provoquer des admirations multiples : paysages grandioses, faune attachante, courage d'un équipage sensible, propos écologique d'une pertinence inquiétante, réalisation cinématographique exceptionnelle. Une œuvre à la mesure de cette mission courageuse du Sedna IV au cœur du dernier continent : l'Antarctique. http://www.lederniercontinentlefilm.com/

4.0 out of 5 stars spectacular cinematography April 16 2012
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The photography of this adventure alone is worth a look see, and following the crew as they seemingly retrace Shackleton's voyage is absorbing, but this is a different kind of documentary. The film is interesting given the subject matter and goal of recording global warming effects on Antarctica. The filmmaker's technique however, of employing a fully orchestrated score to overly dramatize points being made can be a bit unnecessary. It's good composition, and there's no doubting the filmmaker's sincerity, but the visuals themselves are staggering enough without enhancement. Donald Sutherland's narration can also border on the overly dramatic, as can the slightly preachy writing. Still overall, the film documents a rare achievement and adventure. Additionally, there is some great bonus footage (but one non-English segment with French subtitles), and brief photo gallery.
