A good film.
30 September 1999 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

A good film making with good acting and screenplay. I must say that director Guðný Halldórsdóttir has improved her style and ambition since her last work appeared. It was a good idea to let actors speak in their own language, for after five minutes or so, you get used to it.
