The Best Icelandic Film Ever
28 November 2000 | by (Reykjavík, Iceland) – See all my reviews

This film is absolutely the best film ever made in Iceland. It's like Icelanders have finally started to make movies that you can actually compare to foreign movies in originality, character depth, style, story and so much more. Icelandic movies have been good looking yes, very well made production wise and so on, but not much else. This one might be a bit raw (it suits the story quite well) but what it lacks in production value it more than makes up for it in originality, story, acting and humor. It's also about the only Icelandic film that does not include the landscape as one of it's main characters. Instead it's the Icelandic people in all their ignorant and stupid glory.
