Heartstone by Gudmundur Arnar Gudmundsson (trailer)

A remote fishing village in Iceland. Teenage boys and best friends Thór and Christian experience a turbulent summer as one tries to win the heart of a girl while the other discovers new feelings towards his best friend. When summer ends, it’s time to leave the playground and face adulthood.
A personal story, based on the director’s own experiences. «I grew up in a place where the sun shines for the longest time in the country over the summer and the shortest time over the winter; a place where young kids come to know animals, and often discover how nature and people can be both beautiful and cruel. As a kid, I used to wish that I could show the grown-ups around me how our world really was. Now, as a filmmaker, I want to do that – portray youth in a truthful way, as these years reflect our lives».
