Plot summary

In July 1887, The Eagle hot-air balloon was launched from Spitsbergen in Norway and headed out on an expedition to the North Pole. The basket transported engineer and aeronaut Salomon August Andrée, amanuensis Nils Strindberg and civil engineer Knut Frænkel. En route to the North Pole, The Eagle disappeared without a trace. Jan Troell, one of Sweden's most foremost filmmakers, built his film around this dramatic tale of three men attempting to travel over the infinite polar ice. Flight of the Eagle is based on the novel by Per Olof Sundman, which proposed that Andrée was aware that he should have stopped the expedition. Max von Sydow is in the leading role, with the film being nominated for an Oscar.
