Stella gets her groove back
13 June 2003 | by (Reykjavík, Iceland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most popular comedy films ever made in Iceland. It tells the story of Stella, a tired Icelandic housewife who hasn't had a holiday in years (the title translates as "Stella takes a Holiday"). Others involved are her husband and two kids, the husband's mistress and a Swedish gentleman who has come to Iceland to participate in an alcoholic rehab program. The film is as funny as ever, maybe even funnier now than when it was made, because the fashions and hairstyles are well and truly out of style and very cheesy.
