Eternal / For Evigt - 2024 SIFF Capsule Review

The Movie: Eternal / For Evigt

The Director: Ulaa Salim

The Cast: Simon Sears, Nanna Øland Fabricius, Anna Søgaard Frandsen, Viktor Hjelmsøe, Halddóra Geirharosdottir

The Story: An earthquake causes a mysterious fracture on the ocean floor, which accelerates climate change.

Capsule Review:
This is one of those movies that actually exceeded my expectations with a nice balance between a very strong and impactful story and some really great special effects driven moments which made it very reminiscent of films like Contact and Interstellar. While not of the same scale as those movies, Ulaa Salim's latest feature still takes a big swing and, along with a great cast, rarely misses in any aspect of the storytelling.
