The Forbidden Quest

Edition 1993
75' - 1993 - Adventure - Dialogue: English
Director: Peter Delpeut Composer: Loek Dikker With: Joseph O'Conor, Roy Ward
Mid-1941 an old ship's carpenter turns up in an Irish fishing village alleging that he is the only survivor of a secret expedition to the South Pole. J.C. Sul­livan explains that he signed on in 1905 with the Hollandia, without knowing its destination. Sullivan startled his interrogators with his improbable story of this expedition, which eventually took him and other crew members to the very end of the world and of life, to a hell from which no one could return. But Sullivan has film material to prove his story: breathtaking shots of an unknown landscape.
