It is a dark mythological tale of a pair of female nomads in a forbidden place. All three components are unusual. Watched the 52 minutes special features, admire the crew and actors in filming on locations around Svalbard Norway with glaciers, frozen tundra, polar bears, Svalbard reindeer, seals and Arctic foxes.

Note: Based on the short story (under 10 pages long) "True North" by Sara Maitland. The ages and interactions of the three main characters were changed from the book. Guess is to give Yeoh the leading role.

The last 20 minutes of this movie turns it from an OK movie to an idiotic horror thriller that puts Texas Chainsaw massacre to shame. I truly forgot what I was watching. Stay away from this movie, awful awful ending!!

Harshly beautiful !
Starkly dramatic ! Very worth watching. (... but the ending seemed unnecessarily much ?)

Introduction of the cursed woman:

When I was born, the shaman looked at my face and had a vision. He said that I was cursed. My mother was told to abandon me, but she refused. She lived away from the herders while she brought me up. When I was of age, I was forced out by the elders. The shaman said I would bring harm on anyone
foolish enough to get close to me.
===
I'm Loki.
-Anja. That is Saiva. You're lucky Saiva helped you. She always told me, if I ever saw anyone on the tundra, I must never go near them, no matter what. She told me I must chop off their head and then ask if they needed help.
===
It's just me and Saiva, always running.
-Why?
She does not like to be near others. She trusts no one.
