beautiful pictures of Iceland and brilliant of Margrét Vilhjálmsdóttir
23 April 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in 2003 when I was given the video...I fell in love with it from the first moment on. The story was not so much my cup of tea...but it was told with beautiful pictures.

An Ex-Con who comes to Iceland willing to commit suicide gets solved by his daughter but in the end he has to die for her (in a way). There are just some dialogues --- or better: monologues of Keith Carradine's character Simon --- that come across too "simple".

Even though he is said to be the star of the movie it is actually Margrét Vilhjálmsdóttir. She makes the character of Dúa shine and gives her a slightly mysterious note. The true beauty of this movie lies in Dúa and in the Icelandic scenery of which she is a re-presentation.
