Storyline

A film about self-destruction, romance, and everlasting friendship: Ossy and Jimmy are childhood friends from Copenhagen and together they share an experience of a wild life in Thailand. Some years ago Jimmy gave that life up and settled in Iceland, where he now lives the life of ordinary people: a steady job, a wife, and a child. One day Ossy - carrying a deadly secret and in great need of his former confidante - suddenly turns up in Iceland. Jimmy doesn't appreciate the confrontation with his past and he does what he can to deport his old friend. Ossy responds with a vengeance and disrupts Jimmy's peaceful family life. Desperate and for want of ridding himself of Ossy, Jimmy agrees to sell a small portion of heroin for him, but the plan backfires. While Jimmy desperately tries to keep his family together, Ossy plunges into deep water, and ends beaten-up in the Icelandic desert, where he is found by the angelic and beautiful girl Jóna.

Very bad movie, bad in the wrong way that is.
24 July 2003 | by (London W) – See all my reviews

I just saw this piece of I-don't-know-what on video. What a waste of time! A wall of boring clichés instead of depth or insight, it's plain immature in stead of thought provoking. Superficial nonsense and wannabe-arty, that's what this movie is. And it's dead boring, too. Don't waste your time on it, fellas. In one word it's just: pseudo!
