Life we all know
11 June 2003 | by (stokkseyri, Iceland) – See all my reviews

It is in a way a beautiful film. It´s a life we all know, maybe not our life, but life of a friend or someone we know. It´s going the wrong way about everything, and as soon as he let go of the dream it started to come true. Happiness isnt easy to find, sometimes it´s better to let it find you.

Þorsteinn Guðmundsson gives the best performance. He plays this loser hilarious who is oppressed by his wife and try´s to hold his head high and be proud.

This is in my opinion it´s a great film which I think even people from other countries then Iceland would enjoy.
