Great Fun from the Toronto International Film Festival: 2005
15 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Toronto International Film Festival with the director present.

This was a fun ride. This Icelandic film about a gay athlete that comes out to his team and family outlines the follow-up pressures in a fun, light, and at times serious tone. This mix was a great balance for a drama/comedy making it highly accessible. Not only do we see the immediate implications from his outing, but the athlete takes strong action to get on with his life and to help those around him accept the simple fact that he's gay -- which is no big deal to him, but which is evidently a big deal to so many people around him. This keeps you rooting for things to work out, and for his family, friends and fellow athletes to simply accept this part of him and get on with it -- including their own lives.

The overall disfunctionality of everyone creates characters that are at times caricatures, but that really add a light and well-rounded touch to this work. In fact, being caricatures adds a nice touch of depth to the overall character developmnet. I'm glad the characters were lightened up as this resulted in some humour that really made this film work.

Overall, I had a fun time watching this. I hope you do as well!
