A danish mountain climber disappears in Greenland. His brother travels to Greenland to try and find him.
15 May 2005 | by (Greenland) – See all my reviews

The brother expects to find his brother, presumably dead, but what he actually discovers is a huge beautiful country, ancient Inuit history and a warm welcoming greenlandic people.

It is actually many years ago since I've seen the film, but since I was doing some research and found out no one has written anything about this movie, I thought I might write some about it.

It was one of the first full-scale motion pictures in and about Greenland and Josef Motzfeldt, Prod.ass. is actually the finance minister in the greenlandic home rule. The movie also stars greenlandic singer/actor Rasmus Lyberth, as his first motion picture appearance.
