Against the Ice stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Ejnar Mikkelsen, a real-life Danish explorer who navigates Greenland in 1909. Joe Cole co-stars as Iver Iversen, a mechanic who volunteers for an extremely dangerous recovery/research mission. The storyline follows Ejnar and Iver as they attempt to disprove the United States’ claim to Northeast Greenland. Composer Volker Bertelmann (The Old Guard ) scored the 102-minute film, which includes several needle-drop tunes from the early 20th century. Here’s every song in Against the Ice, an adaptation of Mikkelsen’s 1957 autobiography, Two Against the Ice.
