Quite OK
30 September 1999 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

This could have been a much better film than it really is, for the simple fact only that it does not seem to have any outlined purpose. It´s looks more like the film makers where making a collection of beautiful scenes filmed across Iceland, rather than telling a story. But still, quite o.k.
