Breaking Surface – A very promising new scuba movie!

I don’t know if I ever have written here about an upcoming movie, I guess not. But this one surely deserves our attention!

Thanks to a user on a forum I learned about the upcoming, swedish movie “Breaking surface”.

Let us start with the trailer (without subtitles):

*EDIT* Version with english subtitles (thanks to “omai” for that!):

Well, I have to say I wasn’t that excited about a new movie with scuba scenes since I saw the trailer for “Sanctum” several years back!

This one seems all about two frogwomen (sisters actually) and their diving trip that really takes a bad turn. I don’t understand the swedish dialoges in the trailer, but it is rather easy to understand the basic story:

As one of them is trapped underwater the older sitster needs to supply her trapped, younger sister with full air tanks to stay alive and find a way to free her before all air supplies are gone.

And the trailer alone shows already quite a lot of scuba peril scenes and hints how much there might be in the full movie. I’m not the biggest fan of drysuits, but that is only a minor issue. They have modern full face scuba masks, actually quite a rare sight in movies. And the last FFM’s I saw in movies were masks that were designed just for the movies, and they weren’t very attractive.

As you can see in the last moments of the trailer the movie will premiere in sweden on February 14th. It doesn’t have any premiere dates for other countries now and somehow I don’t think that will change that close to the premiere. I do hope that the movie will surface along with subtitles in the near future as I really MUST see this one!

An interesting detail: 1:21 into the trailer there is a diver with a different scuba mask. Is that another diver? If yes, who is he/she and what does this diver intend to do?

Or is the diver her older sister? But why would she now use a different scuba mask? Is her old one broke by then? Many interesting questions 😉

Official storyline:

A few days after Christmas, Swedish/Norwegian half-sisters, Ida and Tuva, set out on a winter dive in a remote part of the Norwegian coastline. Towards the end of the dive, a rockslide traps Tuva under water. As Ida surfaces to call for help, she discovers that the rockslide has struck above water as well, burying their equipment, phones and car keys… they are completely cut off from any chance of outside rescue. As the frantic race for survival unfolds, Ida is put to the ultimate test of character and forcefulness. During Ida’s fight to save Tuva, a fractured sisterhood is exposed, and when all seems lost, the stakes rise beyond simple survival.
