Fantastic
1 February 2016 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on an airplane a few years back, and I was just thinking about it again today. I liked it for several reasons:

* Elite Icelandic actors, every performance is very convincing.

* The script is funny in kind of a subtle manner (doesn't push the jokes to your face).

* It was nice to look at the landscape in small-town Iceland.

So as far as Icelandic movies go, I would say this one was quite memorable and I would recommend it.

Those who have seen the movie and liked it should check out more stuff by the director Olaf and lead actor Stefan Karl.

10/10
