Storyline

A very sad but genuinely human story. The middle-aged Icelandic woman Loa is seriously mentally ill. Finally it turns out that her husband is a latent alcoholic who submits to his addiction whenever Loa leaves him. When she is at home, she is living a normal life and taking care of her children. Sometimes she cannot stand it any longer and just runs away. During one such tour she was eventually found in England. During the tour of the present movie she has ended up in a mental hospital in France, without identification papers and apparently being mute. The young psychiatrist Cora is in charge of her and applies unorthodox methods. She is the only one who suspected that Loa might not be French. Interpol soon identified Loa and on Cora's day off she was sent home. Cora immediately flows to Iceland, where everyone including Loa's husband thinks she is a tourist wanting to see the volcano. Loa is prepared to follow Cora back to the French hospital. Unfortunately, the local doctor happens ... Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

16 January 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Very well acted by Elodie Bouchez and particularly by Didda Jonsdottir, Stormy Weather shows a course of psychiatric treatment that fails when the psychiatrist falls into a variety of the mutism of her patient. They achieve emotional rapport, but it's not clear how treatment would have proceeded, since the doctor (or intern?) was using French to address the silent patient, while it appears, after the patient has been transported back to Iceland, that English is the most common second language there. Was the illustrated nasty weather and volcanism of Iceland the cause of the patient's condition? Let's hope not. Could the doctor have left some therapeutic hints with the woman's husband and the local general M.D.? She might have, but she's becoming a patient herself.
