Djúpið – The Deep

This is an extraordinary story, ‘inspired by true events’, of an Icelandic fisherman who survives against all known medical explanations when his fishing boat capsizes in the North  Atlantic Ocean

The first part of the film shows the journey to survival in freezing temperatures, and the second looks at the fall-out from the event, during his period of recovery.

It’s in no way a spectacular film, but focuses on the man himself and the way he has faced the adversity of nature through his whole life.
