Djúpið - The Deep (DVD)
Movie of the Year 2013, chosen by Edda Awards in Iceland.
Djúpið - The Deep - is a 2012 Icelandic drama film directed by Baltasar Kormákur.
Based on actual events. Twenty-four year-old Gulli is an oafish, overweight resident of the remote Westman islands, who drinks and eats to excess. Like many of his neighbours in the 5000 people community, he is a fisherman in the North Atlantic. One fateful day, the fishermans boat, capsizes in the freezing waters and Gulli is the only person to survive. Against the odds, he manages to swim for hours and then stagger over ice-laden rocks and lava to seek medical assistance.
The film was selected as the Icelandic entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 85th Oscars Academy Awards in 2014.
