I saw this film almost by accident at the Ashland Independent Film Festival, and I was simply blown away. Aside from the fact that it is set against the stunning landscapes of Greenland, a land that few of us know, the story and characters are all deeper than any I've seen in a long time. I was even more blown away when I learned that the two leading actors, Gaba Petersen and Ole Jorgen Hammeken, are both non-professionals. Their performances are worth that of any big star I've seen over the years. The story is a crafty blend of social and cultural struggle with everything an authentic adventure film has to offer. However it doesn't throw in all of the "look at my brilliant screen writing" plot turns that usually just make me yawn. No, this film is filled with heart and soul. I will definitely be recommending it to everyone I know. A must see!
