Ice and the Sky (U)


A documentary about global warming.

The critical consensus

The archive footage is compelling, but the soundtrack is a muddle of voice-over, music and effects.

***(*)(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 07/12/2015

It’s to the film’s ultimate credit that these processes are recognised and reconstructed, so that we are able to marvel at a life spent convincing the world of what it was unable to witness for itself. Now, more than any other, is the time to see such things.

This personal and reflective documentary recounts the mission of a pioneering scientist to find evidence of climate change in the ice of the Antarctic.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/12/2015

Can be a little dry at times, but Lorius is good company and his arguments are persuasive.

This spectacular documentary honours the French glaciologist who foresaw global warming.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 13/12/2015

In 2006 he won an Academy Award for March of the Penguins, now he's back with another eco-themed documentary set in Antarctica.
