Judge a book not by it's cover (or polar bear pelt)
23 March 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

IKINGUT, is a beautifully imagined movie. Depicting both small town mentality, isolation; peoples superstitions in an unpredictable landscape. Hinging on a small Icelandic child whose intrigue for the unknown and mysterious become a reality in the form of a little child wandering in from the iceshelf from Greenland to Iceland. I am not sure if this is achievable as my knowledge of this wonderful landscape of Iceland could not be further away from my countries. Small town superstition sets in due to the un-seasonal weather patterns, and all manner of hi-jinks eventuate with some of the funniest/silliest occurances. The moldy wheat being a particular favorite. The two child actors along with minor roles of the Icelandic childs sister and her admirer, are true and un-forced. The older actors seem a little bit on the cheesy side, but credit to them for the sometimes silliest of stereo-types. IKINGUT, is a funny, heart warming movie. Credit to SBS in Australia, for programming such diverse movies.
