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
Few of the people involved in making this movie had done it before. That's the most impressive part about this movie. At the same time: it shows. Tarantino learned about making movies by directing his first film, My Best Friend's Birthday - and in it you can clearly see that he is just beginning to learn what he is doing. The same goes for Nuumioq.
There are many good ideas in this movie. I like how they use Nuuk and surrounding areas. How it shows a Greenlandic family, and how people talk to each other in Greenlandic/Danish. The cancer storyline is interesting too. These ideas are not enough to cover up the inexperience of the people behind the movie, but it really shows the potential in the people involved.
Greenlandic cinema still has some way to go, but it is looking promising.
