Movie Reviews

A search for lakes hidden under the glaciers
Himanshu Shangari | Jalandhar, Punjab, India | 03/26/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although beautifully made this movie will only be interesting for people who are in love with glacier stuff. A team in search of lakes hidden under the glaciers of mount blanc of Europe is depicted in this movie. A great deal of information on how do they go inside the glacier, what equipments are used, how the blockage of water is detected from top to bottom flow of water by adding colour to it and all that stuff. Watch worthy and value for money for those who are interested."
