Did You Know?


Filming of the Estrella Polar was done aboard the Cervantes Saavedra. It was launched as a lightvessel named Sydostbrotten (Nr 33) 1934 from the Swedish shipyard Götaverken, in Gothenburg. In 1970, the ship was sold and refitted at the Aveiro shipyard in Portugal. The refit converted the vessel into an iron-hulled barquentine with three masts and a bowsprit. See more »

A group of survivors on a 246 feet ship, a single ocean covering the world.
5 January 2012 | by axnpicturesSee all my reviews

"The North Star" is a ship meant to go on a journey for two months. On board we find its crew, a teacher, a scientist and a bunch of students about to start an adventure they would never thought of.

Julia Wilson (Irene Montalà) is a scientist working with the people in charge of the Particle Accelerator in Geneva. Something goes terribly wrong and a black hole will make the continents disappear under the water. They all survive the storm and the side effects of the particle accelerator and now the only solid surface they can step on, it's their ship. Nevertheless they are not safe, and more problems come across as they go on with their journey which is now finding a piece of land that is still standing.

You have action, adventure, romance, mystery, sci-fi and some very amusing moments - all-in-one - as they face whats coming, as they start getting along with each other like a family (or not?) and as the mysteries get revealed. Good interpretation, screenplay and special effects.

It's been a while since the show aired and I don't even know what to write about it without spoiling. But I would compare it to LOST, The Event and even Kyle XY. If you've seen any of those and enjoyed them, I think you're gonna love this one! Totally worth it so far!
