Storyline

After having lived for a number of year's abroad, the two friends Rannvá and Barba return for a visit to their native country, the Faroe Islands. They feel that they have outgrown the small island community, present themselves in outrageous colourful clothing and with a superior attitude to all things Faroes. The real purpose of their visit is to solve unfinished family matters, but they soon loose the grip, and find themselves fleeing the answers they came looking for. The girls are "rescued" by Rúni, a local fisherman, who gives them a lift in his old Ford Granada, decorated with zebra covers, flower lights and a stuffed crocodile in the back. On their journey up north they meet, among others, a fallen rock-singer, missionary grandparents, thirsty wedding guests and a Jesus wannabe. Rúni is constantly running errands, there is always someone he has to meet. Who is this silent, shy man? What is his curious business? And why does he get more bruised after each errand? The short route ... Written by Anonymous

Excellent!
16 March 2000 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie really touched me. It has many great features - the story, the humor and the location are just a few I´d like to mention. It takes you on a journey not only across the Faroe Islands, but in a complete little universe of its own - in unusual colours and in an unusual language :-) Don´t miss it!
