Although this film is okay-ish, it doesn't depict the real story that well.
In some scenes, for example in the scene where Barentz dies, there's quite a lot of greenery. On Nova Zembla, there's hardly any plants at all.
Also, on the trip to Nova Zembla, a crew member gets keelhauled. In reality, it would have been impossible to survive this, since the water in this area would be freezing cold.
From time to time the skies are wrong too - during the summer, there is no night this far up north. So they're watching the stars at night in one scene and in the following one the skies are suddenly all bright. This really boggles me, it would have been easy to at least get this little bit right by doing some proper research.
All in all, I think it is wrong to dedicate this film to the crewman of the real expedition. It doesn't depict the harsh situation they were in too well, and the real story on its own is already film-worthy (for example; the fact that they came across another Dutch ship, in these lifeless waters, which brought them home. In the film, they just picture it as if this ship was just waiting there, for them, near Nova Zembla. In reality, it was also on expidition, and luckily spotted them.). The real crew deserves better.
