Storyline

Paul, part-time laborer and amateur artist, leads an unremarkable life like any other, until his world is disrupted by vivid revelations of the afterlife. At first a welcome respite from reality, his waking visions soon reveal a demonic conspiracy at work within his own community. One by one, prominent members of high society fall victim to a series of mysterious assassination attempts. As the government scrambles to contain the rising panic of the ruling class, public disillusionment grows. Amidst the maelstrom, Paul becomes entangled in a web of powerful elite, evangelical cults, and a plot that could not only bring down the country's economy, but also incite the total collapse of society. Filmed before the 2008 Icelandic banking crash that shocked the world, Messenger is a prediction of chaos turned prophetic. While many of its projections have already been fulfilled by recent events, one can only hope that the remainder will not... Written by Hersing ehf.

Excellent movie!!
9 July 2010 | by (Reykjavik, Iceland) – See all my reviews

I went last night with the movie Messenger and i had modest expectations after seeing the trailer. But I was certainly not disappointed with this movie. The movie is well made in every way. Good acting, good script and good filming. Hjálmar Einarsson director of the film, Darri Ingólfsson lead actor and all the people who worked on this movie deserves praise for excellent work, especially as they didn't have any official contribution for making the film. I was actually a little surprised how few people were in the movie theater on this second day since the premiere. This is a film that everyone in Iceland should see and it should be brought to international movie theaters for showing since it maybe explains a little bit the frustration in the average Icelander after the banks collapsed.

If you live in Iceland, you must see it!
