Movie propaganda

The most amazing story of survival, friendship and adventure ever told.

Suggested by a true story, Eight below (8 below 0; Antarctica) is an exciting action adventure about loyalty and the bonds of friendship set in the extreme wilderness of Antarctica. The film tells the story of three members of a scientific expedition: Jerry Shepard (Paul Walker), his best friend Cooper (Jason Biggs), and a rugged American geologist (Bruce Greenwood), who are forced to leave behind their team of beloved sled dogs due to a sudden accident and perilous weather conditions in Eight below. During the harsh winter, the dogs must struggle for survival alone in the intense frozen wilderness for six months.

The film is inspired by the events of 1957 Japanese Antarctic Expedition, which served as the basis for the blockbuster Japanese film, Nankyoku monogatari.

Theatrical report

Ok, ok, they got me; even though I knew that the dogs were (mostly) going to live I still ended up crying my eyes out at the end.
