It is a great film. It's one of those I try not to watch to much, for fear of becoming bored with it.

And interesting point to note: The main character (Rasmus Lyberth) is actually a musician in real-life, with several albums out.

I do not understand Danish at all. English is not my native language, and except it I do not know any other Germanic language, that is why it's hard for me. So I should learn some Danish before I begin with Greenlandic :)
