I've been trying to find this movie where a journalist moves to an island where his ancestors are from.
I don't remember if he is investigating something.
There's a very great scene, a flashback where we see that his family was cast away, and the family is leaving with their whole house, by which I mean they tied ropes to the house and they are dragging it, it was snowing.
There's also a scene of a murder or attempted murder on a boat.
The last name of the protagonist is weird.
Also I don't know if I'm confusing things with another movie (it has been years since I saw it on a bus), but I also remember a celebration, a guy fixed his boat, and the people are celebrating, but they end up destroying the boat.
