Of The Heart (Movie Thoughts: Heartstone)

p13267745_v_v8_aaRural Iceland is the setting for Gudmundur Arnar Gudmundsson’s ‘Heartstone,’ about a pair of friends, Thor (Baldur Einarsson) and Christian (Blaer Hinriksson) who discover more about themselves one late Summer. Amidst domestic problems at home, but find solace int heir friendship. Christian seems to find more in the company of Thor, which the latter dismisses, and this results to Christian committing suicide. It’s a sad story of one’s coming out to himself, and the internal repercussions that go with it, Atmospheric Iceland is gorgeous and beautifully shot, and the story is as touching.
