Icelandic cinematography: THE BEST !!!
14 November 2000 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

This film very succeed in the Film festival in Karlovy Vary, Czech rep. Logically. It' s based on a very good book, excellent actors, good camera, the best director and ICELANDIC. It was probably the most black comedy I've seen.

I really DO recommend it to you.
