After losing his daughter in the divorce, John finds something suspicious at work. He finds out that he is being framed for embezzlement of millions of dollars from his company, and Trevor comes to his aide, or so he thinks.
Foxtrot is a fast moving action thriller that depicts the deterioration of a relationship between two half-brothers who become involved in an attempted rape and murder of a young hitch-hiker in a remote part of Iceland.
The film stars three of Iceland's leading young actors - Steinarr Olafsson, Valdimar Flyngenring and Maria Ellingsen. It was shot in English and the combination of an up-tempo soundtrack and some stunning visuals taken from many of Iceland's most dramatic volcanic landscapes, gives us a unique action packed thriller for audiences of all ages.
Foxtrot opens with the two brothers, Tommy (Steinarr Olafsson), and Kiddy (Valdimar Flygenring), being reuinted after the elder's return from a star-studded career as a professional footballer in mainland Europe. All is not as it seems and their warm reunion soon turns into a twenty-four hour liaison with death. In just one day all concerned are forced to confront circumstances that most people never encounter in a lifetime.
Foxtrot can best be described as a "right of passage" film set to the highest traditions of the American "road movie". As a fast-paced youth picture it is sure to take its place amongst the best.
If only it was still available!
