Storyline

The star player of Icelands top football team causes a stir when he admits to being gay to his team mates and then goes on a journey to discover himself (with the help of the local press). He soon finds himself on the bench for most of his teams matches and decides to call it quits and join a small amateur team made up of men like himself - gay guys trying to play football in a straight world of Icelandic fishing culture machoism.

Quotes

Georg: So you are seriously telling me you are all gay?
Pétur: Yes this is the gay team from the south.
Georg: That's so interesting. We like to think of ourselves as quite liberal in this village, we even run a multicultural center... my wife runs it, it's called Café Cambodia. It has Kareoki.

A gay pride caper that is short on comedy
31 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film wastes no time getting to the meat of the story: a successful player in one of Iceland's top soccer teams reveals to the press that he is homosexual. That revelation and how it is done produces the only good laugh. For the remainder of this gay caper, the humor goes flat. (Humor is of course cultural. Maybe in Iceland they find the film funny.) The real underlying comedy is how the main character's homosexuality is the object of virulent reproach while the wife's chronic drunkenness is almost accepted as normal. As can be expected of such light fare, all ends in a positive mood and with a big hurrah for gay pride.
