Arctic Heart

Synopsis: Silently and hopelessly in love with brilliant and egotistical Professor Quignard, the shy Christophine has been pursuing her PhD at his research lab for eight years. Now, the professor and his team are on the verge of making a discovery that will rock the world of science and medicine: the key to universal immunity through 'ppm', a miracle penguin protein. All they are missing is approval from the funding board to begin human testing. In a crazy gesture to finally get her beloved's attention, Christophine injects herself with the compound, thereby, becoming the first ever human test subject. Instantly, Christophine, whose name he didn't even know, becomes the center of Quignard's focus, as he and his ever-devoted lab rat secretly embark on one far-fetched experiment protocol after another. until it becomes clear that immunity could be triggered by... lovemaking!

- Arctic Heart -

I can't find a signal.

Did they keep it cold

at all times?

Professor Frederic Quignard

in preparation.

Glucose and decreasing dose

of five milligrams of cortisone

for 5 p.m. Thank you.

P.m. Five milligrams. Preparation.

Glucose and decreasing dose

of five milligrams of cortisone for 5 p.m.

Thank you.

- -Cortisone for 5 p.m.

Thank you.

Philippe. It's empty.

Call the lab tech.

He's out longer than expected.

We need to call the PhD student

that's assisting him.

You know. Soline.

- Corrine.

- Pauline.


Hi, it's Philippe.

I'm in the examining room

with Nadine.

We need Pentothal

for a six-pound subject.

...For 5 p.m. Thank you.


Bizantine, are you there?

- Amandine?

- I'm here.

Good. We're waiting for you

in the exam room.

I'll be right there.

How long do we have?

Ten minutes.

Slight dehydration from the trip.

Rectal temperature is 100.4.

It's good.

No anomalies on the feathers.

No pain.

Go ahead, you can pick its name.



Doesn't Professor Quignard

usually pick the names?



What's its name?

I like Gaston.


Go ahead. Bring it up.

I'll finish the paperwork.

Excuse me?

Well, I could go

and freeze my balls off...

but I'll pass.

That's the spirit, Philippe.

That's the spirit.

Okay. So, you come with me.


Syllogism of bitterness.

Okay. So, it's simple.

You just need to follow

the instructions.

Place him with the others.

But don't touch them.

Don't scare them.




You need to place Gaston

with the others. That's it.

Don't worry.

I'll guide you

from Professor Quignard's office.

Any questions?

Yes. Is Professor Quignard there?

I repeat.

Any questions? Real questions?

Technical ones?


Let's go, then.

Monique? Go to your right.


I can't hear you!

Where are you?

Go to...

I can't hear.

I can't hear you.


Tell me what's going on.

Can you hear me? Corrine?

Can you hear me?

Are you okay?

Put it on the ground and wait.

Go ahead.

Josephine. It's Frederic Quignard talking.

Calm down.

You suffer from hypothermia.

Nadine forgot to adjust

the icefield's temperature.

I'll put myself behind you.

I'll hold you tight.

And I'll violently shake you

to warm you up.

That's the warm-up technique.


I'll count to three.




Feel any better?

Not really.

You did well

making the new one feel included.

You'll assist me for the injections

and the analysis.

Nadine, I want a meeting this afternoon

with all the section chiefs.

Try not to move.

You suffer from transitional upper motor

neuron syndrome with paralysis.

It'll only last a few minutes.

Don't worry.

You'll be back on your feet

for my visit.

I know. I know.

Eglantine, what do you know

about the PPM?

It's a stress protein produced

by penguins.


Penguins produce it while brooding

and it immunizes them

against all known infections.


So, penguins are never sick

when they produce it.


We study it.

How long have you been studying?

Eight years.

But it took a while before I found myself.

I studied literature,

but I didn't like it.

- So, I went into video...

- I struck gold again.

Here. It's a limited edition.

- I already read it.

- Not this one.

I added stuff in the footnotes.


I called it the eternal punishment.


He was fighting with Emilie.

I punished them both.

I need more mice

with low antibodies

so the PPM can work.

Good job.

Hey. Hold on.

I was wondering if you wanted

to watch Donkey Skin with me.
