“Breaking Surface” – My review….2 videos and much more!

After a really long time of waiting for this movie, I was finally able to see it last thursday.

I could have seen in already but I wanted a full HD picture and a language I can actually understand.

The german blu-ray has the original language on it (swedish) and a german language option of course. You can switch on german subtitles as well.

I watched the movie in german once and watched the underwater scenes again a day later with original swedish audio and german subtitles.

The movie has a runtime of 82 minutes. At least 40(!) minutes of that is placed underwater! You won’t find many movies that can offer that….especially with female divers.

And it’s pretty unique because there are actually no sharks or other creatures in it like in the horror flicks (examples: “47 meters down” and “47 meters down – Uncaged”).

It’s a survival movie. Two sisters fight to survive a really bad situation underwater.

Also, after 9 minutes in….you won’t find a single man in the whole rest of the movie! As far I can remember that happens only in one other movie I have in my movie collection: “The Descent”, were 6 women exploring a cave system and encounter some monsters there. I know quite a lot of movies with no women in it (mostly war movies) but the other way around is a rare thing.

The fact that there are over 40 minutes of underwater scenes in the movie is awesome, but turns out to be kind of problematic for this post. I won’t show all of them of course. But which scenes should I present here?

Also I don’t wanna show scenes with major spoilers to the story here.

Today in this post I wanna present two scenes to motivate you to buy and watch this movie. More on that….later.

For now, let’s start with….

Scene 1!

And here is the video:

A nice peril scene for starters! Even it was pretty predictable….and hard to understand what the idiots on the bridge were doing as it was known that she was working down there.

A good idea of her to get rid of her tank to jam the propeller, as it was pretty much her only option besides waiting for those idiots to turn it off. But then it might have been too late….

Scene 2

Tuva, the younger sister is trapped behind a rock at 32 meters depth! Her oxygen is gone and Ida hastily returns to her with a full tank…

 

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Great scenes! It’s no secret that I really like scuba peril scenes. And seeing both of them here in desperate need for air….is quite …well….sexy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also the swapping with their full face dive masks and their “normal” scuba masks is also interesting! I normally like full face dive masks, but I must say this Ocean Reef mask with the fully transparant faceplate isn’t so attractive in comparison to other masks like the Interspiro mask that Tania Raymonde is using in Deep Blue Sea 3.

Now back to the movie in general.

It has some flaws, no doubt. The scene above with Ida looking for that oxygen tank for example.

She is without air for around 130 seconds! She is not a professional diver like her little sister and isn’t a really good athlete or in great shape. I hardly doubt that she could hold her breath that long while being in such a stressfull situation. Her sister is trapped, she is without air, searching for that oxygen tank in the darkness. She gets lost for a while and yet is pretty calm as she finally reaches Tuva again…

I would have shortened that scene. Let her dive without air for 60 seconds and then swimming back on the brick of total panic. That would be more dramatic and more realistic in that case. Yes, there are apnoe divers that can go on much longer without air….but Ida isn’t one, she is highly stressed and not in a condition to stay without air that long.

Another thing is that tank she is searching for. I checked the scenes several times and can’t explain where it is coming from. It appeared out of nowhere! Where did Ida got that from?

Spoiler title
They start with their tanks on the dive. 2 tanks are lost due to the rock slide. 2 tanks are in the car. That leaves 4 usable tanks. Both swap their tanks once and that tank is suddenly there as well. Really odd…..

Also, a big rock falls on Tuva. She is trapped under it but isn’t hurt at all!? I guess that is ….possible…but damn, a “little” hard to buy. But in the end, it has to be like that so that the story could develop like it does.

There are one or two other aspects but I don’t wanna sound too negative.

 

All in all it is a really good, thrilling movie! The desperate atmosphere is suspensefull and I tried to come up with solutions myself as Ida is trying to free her sister from down below! And as I said, more than 40 minutes of underwater scenes with women in one movie is pretty unique, especially without CGI sharks or other monsters.

Both actresses did a really good job and did most of the underwater scenes themselves after they both learned to scuba dive for the movie as I heard from an interview with the director (on the Blu-ray).

Ok, the drysuits aren’t exactly attractive, but well it’s Norway and not the Caribbean. Also, the darkness below at over 30 meters adds to the grim survival-fight-atmosphere. It wouldn’t work that good in a bright, beautiful settings like in the Bahamas for example.

Folks, I can only recommend this movie to you! This movie belongs in every collection of someone who like survival movies OR scuba movies OR movies with female divers OR movies with scuba peril scenes.

So folks, ORDER this movie. BUY this movie!

Such movies must be supported, so other producers would make movies with scuba scenes too!

Scuba scenes are expensive, many producers are afraid of doing them.

This year there were two new movies with great scuba scenes…I hope that is a new trend!

The german Blu-ray has some extras:

  • Trailer (pretty useless as you see that before you watch the movie)
  • an automated picture “show” with music (end credits song)
  • an interview with the director (16 minutes, interesting!)

I had hoped for a “Behind the scenes” feature as well…but no luck.

Oddly enough I am sure I saw such a video floating around the web some months ago. It was rather short but interesting and showed the fliming in a water tank.

….so, this post is long enough now…

I will post more about this movie another time.

I have some story ideas of my own on this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have you seen it already?

Scuba couple gets trapped in a wreck! [Flipper]

[2nd post for today]

This time a scuba couple gets trapped in a wreck as they are on a treasure hunt.

But rescue isn’t far away in form of 2 divers (one female). So we have 2 frogwomen in this one!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Yeah, a solid “trapped underwater with a 99% depleted tank” scenario ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wonder why everyone is so reckless before they get trapped underwater? Both should have been out of the wreck long before they did.

They were very lucky that help was already on the way.

But it is a good scene and having 2 frogwomen in it doesn’t hurt either ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wanna know from which episode this is?

Jessica Alba trapped underwater! [+Bonus video][Flipper]

Time for more scuba action from (the newer) Flipper TV show!

In the first video Jessica Alba dives around to find some treasure….but soon she gets trapped as her dive buddy is very reckless!

And…of course….her air is already 99% depleted as it happens! Surprise!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Nothing special, but a nice “out of air” scenario with Jessica Alba in her youth!

Picture quality could be better, but keep in mind that this show was never released in HD or even on a DVD.

Hopefully that will change some day.

I got a bonus scene for you from another episode, to show that modern wetsuits can be sexy:

*EDIT* Now in the correct aspect ratio….

Yeah ok, the show is from the 90’s but that suit that is the era of modern wetsuits already.

I really like that smoothskin wetsuit, even it would prefer it to actually have sleeves.

But the smoothskin texture is very sexy for me as it is the closest nowadays we can get to the epic vintage rubber wetsuits ๐Ÿ˜‰

And the fact that she “strips” down to her bikini doesn’t hurt as well….

The female record-pilot and her deadly mistake(?) [oxygen mask]

Yeah, I know, this post isn’t about scuba diving at all…but from time to time I like to post about other breathing devices too.

The movie to which these scenes belong is by far the oldest which I ever posted about…it’s from 1933!

The chances are big I never would have stumbled upon this one if not a friendly user have recommended it to me.

I watched the whole movie and this scene was the dramatic finale!

It’s important to know the story behind it:

A woman becomes a pilot in an era where women weren’t “supposed” like that. She get’s into an affair with a married man and in ends badly.

She thinks about him as she tries to get the world record flight altitude title.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, that happens when you are without oxygen for too long…..

She was thinking about the tragic love of her life, and pulled off her oxygen mask perhaps without thinking about the danger.

I love that moment as she realiseses how badly she needs her oxygen mask again.

Hastily she tries to get it back on, but too late….she get uncnoncious and the plan gets out of control.

The actress is actually is Katharine Hepburn who was 26 when this movie came out!

Ok, hard to say how realistic that scene is, as she is only for without oxygen for some moments. I think it might actually take a bit longer from what I read.

However this peril scene is quite unique! Never saw that type of oxygen mask and a woman passing out in such a scene…. that’s certainly something new for me!

And the moment from which she realises her error until she tries hastily to get her mask back on….that’s quite thrilling for me. It seems that for a second she forgot where her oxygen mask is. Hard to say if that was in the script or not.

However she is in great distress as she tries to get the mask back on.

 

*EDIT*

A second theory is that she wanted to kill herself. She had some seconds thought about it….but too late……

Greek frogwoman trapped in a net! [+special cut bonus video]

I know about this scene for quite a while but haven’t posted it here so far.

A nice guy asked if I would knew it and now, I wanna make a post about it.

Here we have the two scuba scenes of the movie.

In the first one a young couple dives around…each on their own(!) and soon the guy gets into trouble…

In the main scene at the end of the movie they are diving again, and this time the frogwomen gets into trouble….big trouble!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Sorry, but that is actually the best picture quality available for this rare greek movie.

Well…..I would say….WOW! And not really a good wow…. ๐Ÿ˜†

They have a gorgeous woman in a solid wetsuit. She dives into a net. A good scenario!

But so MUCH aspects here are really badly done….

First the music: Sounds like a madman on drugs playing some most annoying sounds on his electric keyboard. I get headaches from that…..

And there are so many logic plotholes I don’t know where to start!

Ok, why the happy couple is always diving each on their own….I don’t know….pretty reckless, but ok, not unlogical at least.

Two times she reaches for her knife more or less, why doesn’t she get it???? She isn’t so traped that she couldn’t reach it.

I guess her tank is supposed to be empty at one point but she is exhaling all the time through her mouth piece on regular basis. When is she supposed to be out of air?

Off course it’s the usual theme: when a diver is trapped he/she has only a few % of air left…. oh man.

Why are the cutting SO often (in way too long scenes) to him setting on these rocks???? That interrupts way too often her dramatic scenes.

He decides that she may be in trouble so starts looking for her. Good idea! But why is he diving as slow as a 100 year old grandma? The love of your life seems to be in trouble… man! She is diving alone and her tank must be pretty empty!!!! You should HURRY….a bit at least….

Often it seems like she isn’t really trapped in the net as it is floating pretty high above the ground. It looks like she even could reach the surface sometimes.

He finally finds her! And what does he do??? He starts yanking on the net! ARGGGGGGGGHHHHHH

Perhaps she needs air???? You could give her some!!!! You also has a knife! Use it, damn it!

All the time she is still concious and kicking. Just before they reach the surface she doesn’t move anymore. Is he sharing his air with her? NOOOO, still he does nothing like that.

They reach the surface, she still has the regulator in her mouth, which would be very unusual for someone out of air….

But what then? Does he give her mouth to mouth? No, she pushes and pulls a little on her!!!?! Ok, I know that mouth to mouth rescue isn’t a very old technique. And there were older ones before that.

But good god, he moves so slowly! So very slowly …like she would be a puppet on a first aid exercise….no rush….she isn’t breathing…but take your time.

Then she is seemingly concious for some seconds….but quickly dies afterwards??????

And he is still very relaxed… maybe he is thinking: “what the hell, my beloved is dead now….well, then I can go home now and make dinner”.

WHAT???? Who comes up with all that madness?

I guess the screenwriter/director was as mad as the music composer.

Ok, I admit I haven’t seen the full movie as it is in greek language. But so much is going wrong in this final dive scene which could have been so much better!

 

*EDIT* Here are some background news I got from the nice guy who reminded me about this movie:

The translate of the title is “that summer”. She is scuba teacher but has cancer as the script says. Althought decided to dive with her ex husband. At the second dive she didn’t felt ok underwater because of her illness and finally died. For this reason her ex husband didn’t do her anything to save her.

 

Well, there you can see how important a background story can be to understand this weirdness better.

But still I am convinced of many of the things I wrote above.

For you folks I edited the final scene to a much BETTER version …with an open eding (blog exclusive):

The title of the movie is already in the video…but here is the IMDB page:

โ€œMore Dry Scubaโ€ by Vicky Devika

Part 5 of my series of posts on Vicky Devika videos. The final part (for this series).

In this series I wanna present some videos from Vicky Devika who has made a lot of videos in sexy rubber outfits.

So, why is this interesting for this blog? Well, the answer is quite simple: She has done several scuba videos while being in rubber catsuits!

In these videos some great fantasies of mine come to life, and I am sure that many of you will love these videos as well!

Today I wanna present the video โ€œRubber Scuba with Full Face Maskโ€.

 

Official description:

I just loved my experience shooting my previous clip “Dry Scuba” so much I decided to do it again! This time I use my new 3M gasmask for that double hose FFM scuba look…

The cool compressed air from the tank is so fresh and pure. I’m completely sealed off from the outside world and perfectly safe in my hermetically sealed rubber suit. Such a pleasurable and luxurious thing to breathe from a tank. It’s almost like designer air! I know, I’m a bit crazy… but that’s why you adore me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not to mention that I have propped the tank on the rubber bed and I’m riding it as I lose myself in my sexy new gasmask… 

 

โ€“

Here are some images from the video:

 

 

And a preview snippet:

โ€“

Had to edit one of the screenshots to stay on the safe side. Don’t want trouble with the hoster ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Well, a unusual scenario and on dry land, but very exciting nonetheless!

She already had that fantastic gas mask in the first video I posted here, and again it’s a big plus point in the video.

I enjoy how she puts it on, attaching the hoses to the mask, turning on the air so she could breath in that closed system.

Totally encased in rubber she starts riding on the tank and her breathing gets faster while you can hear her excitement. ๐Ÿ™‚

A great scenario! Especially as she starts playing with herself while breating faster and faster.

And as the highlight she turns off the air for a while as she is close to the ….peak….which is quite a turn on….and not only for her! ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Of course I have several ideas on how you could add some more peril to this scenario…..

โ€œPeril in scubaโ€ by Vicky Devika โ€“ [Rubber frogwoman tied up underwater]

Part 3 of my series of posts on Vicky Devika videos.

In this series I wanna present some videos from Vicky Devika who has made a lot of videos in sexy rubber outfits.

So, why is this interesting for this blog? Well, the answer is quite simple: She has done several scuba videos while being in rubber catsuits!

In these videos some great fantasies of mine come to life, and I am sure that many of you will love these videos as well!

Today I wanna present the video โ€œPeril in scubaโ€.

 

Official description:

Vicky wakes up underwater with a scuba regulator in her mouth and her hands tied to a post. As she struggles to remember what happened to her and how she got there, she quickly starts to panic and drops the regulator. With no air to breathe, she tries to reach for the regulator before it’s too late…

Here are some images from the video:

 

And a preview snippet:

Wow, that’s a fine peril scenario! Waking up underwater, tied up, with a scuba tank providing air…for the moment.

She is really in trouble! And however tied her up like that, seemed to suit her up in a special way ๐Ÿ˜‰

If he didn’t capture her dressed like that….

The video is rather short in comparison to her other videos, but I like the fact that the scenario wasn’t dragged out for too long to the point where it would get boring or unrealistic.

I would like to talk about the ending, but I won’t spoil it here for you.

Will she escape this trap? You will find out if you buy the video ๐Ÿ˜‰

And again the audio here is very importantโ€ฆ.I recommend to turn up the the volume and use headphones for the best experience. ๐Ÿ™‚

An idea for a follow up video for this scenario:

Perhaps there would be a sinister frogwoman next to her in part 2 of “Peril in scuba”.

She could play with her tied up victim.

Steal her regulator for a while….put in back in.

Shut off the air valve for a while….to open it up again.

And perhaps the tied up victim manages to free herself at some point and a deadly scuba fight would decide who will survive….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Frogwoman gets stuck underwater….and finds gold treasure!

I stumbled upon this flick by accident more or less. It has one good scuba peril scene and some more diving scenes with a female scuba diver.

I added one more scuba scene of her to the peril scene.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

A solid peril scene. Of course she is out of air as soon she gets trapped.

There seems to be a hidden rule for getting trapped underwater in a movie. If you get trapped your gauge MUST be in the red section. ๐Ÿ˜†

Perhaps she didn’t deserved it, but she risked a lot by diving through that tight space, especially as she had countless other possibilties.

I like these silver vintage regulators, that was a nice bonus.

The movie title can be found right at the start, but if you missed it:

The sister in law [sabotaged scuba gear]

Always wanted to see the whole movie since I heard about the scuba scene in it.

Never found the movie so far….but I found a nice clip that I wanna share with you. No edits were needed.

2 frogwomen and a frogman dive together.

But soon one of them realizes that evil forces have sabotaged her scuba gear (tank)!

Sorry for the bad picture quality but this was the best I found so far. And it’s a rare TV movie form the 90’s so……

 

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Still would love the see the movie to get the story!

Who are these people? Who wants to kill her….and WHY?

Why are all 3 of them diving alone each after a while?

Well, from this clip the guy would be my primary suspect as the other woman decides to help her.

But who knows without more info….

If you know a way to get the full movie, please let me know!

Quite a nice scene! Especially as her gear was sabotaged! Someone wanted her dead since her gauge isn’t showing that her tank is empty.

A little odd is the fact that she isn’t moving at all. If I would be out of air I would swim towards the rescuer who has spotted me but is still in some distance.

The movie title is already in the post title, but there are tons of movie with the title….so here is the link to the movie:

Flipper…and a frogwoman who has to dive too deep!

I checked all 4 seasons of the newer Flipper TV show by now and found quite a lot of good scenes. Some of them were even new to me ๐Ÿ™‚

So, in this one a woman in a drysuit has to dive to defuse some missiles. And she has to dive very deep….and that is where the problems start!

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

[SPOILERS ahead, watch the video first!]

A pretty solid peril scene if you ask me!

I am not sure, but I guess she suffers of nitrogen narcosis as she dives way too deep.

But she had to to get to these dangerous warheads.

Again, Flipper saves the day by offering his ride along services ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not the biggest fan of drysuits…but don’t worry this will be the last one you will see in this show.

3 frogwomen fighting for …..AIR! [Blog exclusive]

Thanks a lot for the friendly user who recommended me this short movie!

This one is rather….different, but offers a lot in terms of scuba peril.

This is not my upload this time, I simply provide the link. Normally I edit some scenes together, but this wouldn’t make much sense in this case. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Story:

A family (incl. 2 hot daughters) arrives at a lake where they take a little diving trip.

As they emerge from the water….something is wrong….VERY wrong.

 

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video (for adults only):

(don’t let yourself be scared off by that thumbnail image…the movie is really good actually!)

[SPOILERS ahead, watch the movie first!]

Ok, I admit this scenario isn’t completely new, have seen it in two movies so far actually…..BUT… this short movie handles it really good!

The horror gets real as the family members start to turn on each other. They know, the only air left to breathe is in their scuba tanks, so each of them only think of themself.

How can I survive just a little longer? Their most primitive survival instincts take over and they are willing do everyting to steal each others air supply.

I have to say…I really enjoyed to see them fighting against each other like that. Especially as they try to steal each other regulators ๐Ÿ˜‰

Of course, I would have been nice to actually see them diving beforehand, but I guess the budget for this one was really limited.

I’m not too happy about the ending as the grandma “speared” the last survivor of that family. Somehow funny, but not exactly realistic to nail her against the wall like that….and I would have liked to see her fighting over the last air tanks against some other folks.

But ok, after all… they are all doomed anyway…

One problem I got with this one is that often the air on these tanks isn’t turned on …or the tank is empty even it isn’t supposed to be. Because quite often you don’t hear the normal “hissing” sounds that these regulators make above the surface.

What did you think about this movie?

Two frogwomen, a dolphin and a female freediver in trouble

I was reminded about this scene by a friendly user, thanks for that!

In this one we have a reckless female freediver, two frogwoman in FFM’s and a dolphin.

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Ok, I admit, the frogwomen are only supporting characters in this one.

It’s really odd how she manages to gets tangled up like that but ok.

It’s odd how all divers are at 100 feet when she freedives to 400 feet…. as their equipment was ready for up to 300 feet.

It’s odd why the divers don’t do anything but waiting for her.

I wish the two frogwomen would have rescued her instead of the guy and the dolphin. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But after all it’s a nice underwater peril scene.

Wanna know from which episode this scene is?

To my knowledge it’s Season 4 episode 5, not 10 as IMDB lists it. But the title is correct.

The female diver, the male diver and the deadly cave [Scuba peril – Hall of FAME]

I stumbled upon this one quite some time ago, but never posted it due to the very bad picture quality (320*240).

Luckily I found an upgrade that has at least a solid picture quality, and that’s the best we will get as this is from a brazilian TV show.

Story:

A stunning female diver goes on a dive with a guy (husband, squeeze?).

Soon she swims into a different direction and the problems begin! Will they both survive?

Preview:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Sorry for the text in the picture, that was embeded in the source video.

Ha, I am sure you didn’t expect that outcome! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t know why she is separating from him on purpose like that. I don’t know any of the background story since I don’t speak portugese.

And it’s quite odd how fast they run out of air. Hard to tell how much time elapsed, but he realises that she is gone rather quickly. They both should have air for around 45 minutes.

The first time she checks her air reserves she is already out, was she diving around without orientation for over 30 minutes?

However, what makes this scene so remarkable are the “sound effects”. She sucks desperately for air and I actually never heard that sound so “loud” like in here.

I would say they recorded that sound later in the sound studio and added it afterwards.

Her increasing panic in combination with these sounds make a really great peril scene in my opinion! A rare gem!

Somehow ironic that he manages to rescue her, then wanna retrieve his camera, doesn’t check his air supply before the dive and therefore drowns later on.

Wanna know the title of the TV show?

An unexperienced frogwoman on her first dive

This odd scene from a russian movie (tv show?) shows how much you can do wrong when you go on a scuba dive!

I don’t understand the russian audio but clearly the woman never dove before and the guy has some experience with scuba diving.

Let’s start with some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Oh man! These two do a LOT things that you shouldn’t do while diving! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Her excuse may be the little to none experience that she have. A fine example why you shouldn’t dive without a proper scuba certificate!

She gets a panic attack and accidentaly rips out his regulator, he should now just retrieve his regulator and the situation could be under control again.

But he graps the regulator of the panicking frogwoman….what a disaster move!

These two have 4 working regulators in total…but what do they do? Use only 1(!) of them! Oh man…..

Of course pulling out her regulator makes things worse and she heads to the surface….way too fast!

These two can be happy that they are still alive. ๐Ÿ˜†

I don’t have an IMDB link this time, I just know the english title:

“Wanted a wife with a kid”

*EDIT* Original title seems to be: IMDB

If this is a russian movie or TV show…I don’t know.

What do you think of that scene?

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!):

Trailer with subtitles

(can’t embed the video here)

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.
