Storyline

Nuummioq tells the story of a young man's odyssey from mundane existence into an acute sense of the sacred. Like most regular guys in the tiny capital city, Malik works, cavorts with buddies, and fools around-toggling between Danish and Greenlandic languages. All at once, when he discovers he's very ill, mortality intrudes. Keeping the news to himself, Malik accompanies his cousin on a boat trip. What begins as an unremarkable outing becomes a transcendent journey at the edge of the world as he grapples with his elusive past and tunes into the present. Written by Mikisoq H. Lynge

Greenland's first international film has international appeal
10 April 2011 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

I just saw this at the Film Festival in Washington DC. It is up for several awards. We were fortunate enough to have one of the film's directors available for Q&A.

Some of the plot elements difficult to understand are uniquely Greenlandic. The tourist woman who dies is a Greenlandic legend about wandering the world and then returning home only to die just before reaching Greenland. The two small totems brought home from the cave have something to do with marriage and are somehow related to strong family ties.

This film is quite evocative, the music is Greenlandic. The use of the music is different from most other film types. It may have something to do with the Greenlander's ability to live with long strong silences.

The film is more impressive once you know that the actors are amateurs. For all of them, this is their first full length film; the lead actor pays his rent by carpentering; the family unit is really related to each other.

The Greenlandic language is interesting. You can hear strains of German, Danish and English. There is a strong guttural sound to some of the consonants.

I agree with one of the other reviewers that the published summary has little to do with the actual film.
