No. As the capital city of Greenland, Nuuk has a population of over 17,000 people. This is just a stereotypical joke made by the producers of the movie. And the city that they filmed the greenland scenes in were not in Greenland. The town depicted as Nuuk in the film was actually Stykkishlmur, Iceland on the Snfellsnes peninsula.

The short story and this film are two very different things, and you can absorb one without disturbing your enjoyment of the other. The short story is a brief (a few pages) look from the perspective of a man who enjoys fantasizing.
