What could be better than knowing your future? And what could be worse? A love-filled childhood abruptly ends when catastrophe descends. One that the child had foreseen yet failed to act upon.

Storyline

A 40-year-old is hiding in a self-made prison of mundane life. The film opens as he finally becomes resolved to dare gaze at and come to terms with someone's totally different life. His unthinkable past. He turbulently sheds the cobwebs to find that light and happiness have been awaiting him. And this potentially cold cinematic knock on life's door becomes a defiantly uplifting work of art. Written by IFC

Its not an action flick; so don't rate it as such
2 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Old Icelandic believes and superstitions are not, as a previous reviewer has alleged, the main plot or part of the story told in this film. They are rather used as a medium of telling a tale of an old tragedy mixed with a present day love story, a story of a tragedy survivor conquering his past. Truly premonitions are not an uncommon superstition in Iceland but unfortunately neither are tragedies such as the one that befalls.

Its a dark and gloomy film with a well fitting soundtrack; all to add on to the viewers experience of the plot lines happenings. Sure it may seem a little slow in todays day and age, it is nothing like Die Hard 4,5 or 6 except for the out of character and completely unrelated to Icelandic superstition; the flying Witch.
