“GRIMSEY”— After Breaking Up

 

“Grimsey”

After Breaking Up

Amos Lassen

After breaking up with Norberto who ran away to Iceland, Bruno wants to find him. Arnau, a local tour guide in Reykjavik, helps in his search. Their trip will become a grieving process until they reach the remote island of Grimsey.

The film is set in the gorgeously austere Icelandic landscape, embodying the end of the relationship. This is truly a romantic story and as Bruno searched for Norberto, he also searches within himself.

“Grimsey” is the feature debut of both directors, Richard Garcia and Raul Portero who also star in the film.

The power of the film is in bucking some LGBT stereotypes by telling a universal story without seeking the normalization of his characters.
