Project Description

Heartstone (Hjartasteinn)

Award-winning debut film about the boys Thor and Christian who experience an intense summer full of emerging desires, set in a remote fishing village. While one tries to conquer the heart of a girl, the other discovers feelings for his best friend. The splendid Icelandic landscape is the setting for a sensitive coming-out movie, made in the characteristic Nothern style; dreamy, sincere and very original.

“Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson makes a promising debut in this tender, slightly lopsided study of teenage friendship and inchoate sexuality.”

“A well-acted, visually atmospheric debut that shows promise, casting a soulful gaze on awkward-age upheavals”
