Movie Info

In Greenland's capital, sixteen year-old Inuk lives a troubled life with his alcoholic mother and violent step-father. One morning, after pulling the half-frozen boy out of an abandoned car, the social services send Inuk North, to a children's home on a tiny island in the middle of the arctic sea-ice. There he meets Ikuma, a polar bear hunter, who takes him on an epic dog sled trip on ice. Despite the bitter cold and fragile sea-ice, the most difficult journey will be the one they must make within themselves. (c) Roxie


Critic Reviews for Inuk

The film certainly displays an undeniable verisimilitude... and its striking visuals are bone-chilling enough to make you feel the need to wear a parka, even if watching it in a nicely heated theater.

The pure white and blue beauty of Greenland's stunning icy landscape is paired with an involving story of a traumatized teen reconnecting with his ancestral ways in Mike Magidson's enjoyable feature debut.

Although the story is simple, its themes are powerful and it speaks with a clear voice of its own.

The film can boast of an exotic locale and rare potential, but in Mike Magidson's hands the filmmaking is disappointingly shopworn.
