A Classic Comedy!
13 December 2010 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Karlakórinn Hekla is one of my all time favorites. It has the greatest cast in a film that I have ever seen. This film also is not just a comedy it is an epic masterpiece that happens to be hilarious. The music is really good and a reason to see the film. The acting is so great and everyone are perfect for their roles. The director is really good and perfect for this film. The screenplay is also good however the acting is so good that it makes the film the classic that it is. I like the film a lot and it is a classic comedy and I hope people will watch it both Icelandic and not Icelandic. I give it 10/10 because it is the funniest film I have ever seen.
