“Considerable sensory and sensual gratification stems from the superb, assuredly unfamiliar settings, which include iceberg-bearing bays, stark, rocky terrain and bracing coastal areas; Bo Bilstrup’s crystalline widescreen lensing.”

~ Todd McCarthy, Variety

“Stand back and observe, seeming to always have the camera in the right place. Credit must go to Danish cinematographer Bo Bilstrup — working only with two lamps purchased at Ikea — for so expertly capturing the shadows of life in Greenland.”

~ James Greenberg, The Hollywood Reporter

Making excellent use of the breathtaking Greenland scenery via Bo Bilstrup’s cinematography, Nuumioq is transcendent in its many external scenes.

~ Neil Young, Film Lounge
