Iceland's Oscar entry 'The Deep' director on filming shipwreck, working with Mark Wahlberg


As part of an early look at next year’s Oscars, Prize Fighter — in an ongoing series — is highlighting several of the directors and official entries submitted by a whopping 71 countries competing for the Academy Award for best foreign language film.

Iceland’s official 2013 foreign film Oscar entry The Deep, directed by Baltasar Kormákur, opens with a view of a boat submerged in the dark, deep, green ocean.

It’s an eerie, almost calm shot, and foreshadows the rest of the film, about an absolutely tragic real-life incident in Iceland in 1984, when a fishing boat capsized off the coast leaving only one survivor, played in the movie by large, curly-haired Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.
