Storyline

When the humiliation and grief of his eldest son's shooting rampage and subsequent suicide threatens to pull him under, a brokenhearted father (Rasmus Lyberth) leaves his family and tight-knit community and heads into Greenland's bleak landscape. As he journeys forth on an antiquated dogsled with no destination, he eventually finds solace -- and the soul he lost long ago -- in the form of a mystical hermit (Anda Kristiansen).

Self discovery in the white washed mountains of Greenland.
22 February 2003 | by DukeEmanSee all my reviews

The Danes come to town and take over the Inuit's culture, altering them to a town of drunks with no sense of direction. The town's main chief drunk Rasmsu, falls victim to the destruction of modern change when his son goes on a killing spree and then turns the rifle on himself. Rasmus falls apart and journeys on a spiritual quest to find his ancestral way of living as he runs into the white washed mountains of Greenland. It is here that the widescreen works with the barren cold landscape being the backdrop for Rasmu's self discovery. The photography and music cover the structural gaps in this tale that is worth seeing on the big screen.
