I saw this film by a total accident and I'm happy to have seen it. The film isn't perfect but its very good and has a nice kind of morale. Niceland is basically about a young man (or an old boy) Jet living a joyful life working at a factory with his girlfriend who he's deeply in love with and vice versa. But shortly after they decide to get married and live together happily ever after her cat, who she has a weird affection for, dies. The girlfriend falls into depression which could (strangely enough) lead to her death and the only way to give her a purpose to live and save her is to tell her the meaning of life. So Jet goes on a journey to discover the meaning of life and thats when he meets Max, a strange man living in a junkyard who claims to know the answer...
Niceland is a pretty surreal film and I wouldn't necessarily call it Icelandic or even British but instead if anything I would probably call it "Nicelandic" especially because I have no idea where its supposed to happen and it felt like a new kind of style. To begin with the film was very fun and entertaining but after a while it got kinda slow but before the film reached its climax it went up hill again and I noticed it had a good point and was trying to say something (although I don't want to reveal what). Gary Lewis and Martin Compston are both very good as are the other actors. Out of ten I would give it a rating somewhere between 7.3 to 7.7 although I can't really imagine what kind of feedback it will get.
