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

IMDb's storyline to NUUMMIOQ is not completely accurate.
17 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wonder if Mikisoq H. Lynge, who wrote IMDb' Storyline, actually saw NUUMMIOQ? Because if he/she did then why is the Storyline inaccurate? I did in fact see the film. Here is a copy of the storyline, and my revisions to the CAPITALIZED inaccuracies: "After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, Malik joins his best friend on his last boat trip into the fjord. Malik is a 35 year old carpenter living in Nuuk. Things are starting to look bright in Malik's life, when he's diagnosed with terminal cancer and faces a difficult decision: Leaving his hometown to receive medical care that would perhaps prolong his life - or stay in Nuuk with family and friends and die within a few months. Malik and his childhood friend Mikael decide to go on a the last boat trip into the fiord, WHERE THEY SEEK OUT THE CAREFREE WORLD OF THEIR CHILDHOOD. (This is not true at all. They did NOT go on the boat trip to "seek out the carefree world of their childhood." They went on the boat trip because Mikael, who is Malik's COUSIN, wanted to take pictures of the iceberg for a TV commercial.) During this boat trip, the two friends REDISCOVER THEIR FRIENDSHIP (As I said before, Malik and Mikael are COUSINS. They might've grown up together as if their were friends, but the bottom line is that they're family--blood relatives! They share the same grandparents, who are an important part of both of their lives. This would not have happened if they were just FRIENDS?! I'm not sure why Mikisoq H. Lynge insists on calling them "friends"? Another thing--Malik and Mikael were already close so they did not have to go on the boat trip to REDISOVER their friendship.) and Malik is given an opportunity to come to terms with his own imminent death." I just thought I would straighten out that Storyline. I think I know why Mikisoq H. Lynge changed it in some places. He/she probably wanted to make NUUMMIOQ sound a lot more interesting than it actually was. Overall, the film was all right, but it was nothing to write home about. I guess the biggest problem I had with the movie was that I found it contrived in some places. **SPOILERS ALERT** For example, wasn't it convenient of the writer(s) to have Malik come across a strange woman who killed herself on the first night of his boat trip thereby forcing him to reevaluate his mortality? Wasn't it also convenient to have Malik's boat run out of gas on their way home thereby forcing them to seek help from the sheep farmer who they make amends with before Malik's death? Finally, wasn't it convenient to have Malik's girlfriend be able to go out on a date with him on the night before he is about to leave for Denmark so he can explain to her his medical condition? I believe NUUMMIOQ had good intentions, but it was difficult for me to relate to or empathize any of the characters due to the "contriveness" of the story.
