The charming and terrible Ormur
22 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I recently saw Gauragangur again, and this time on DVD. The first time I watched it I wanted to write a review but never did. In some ways Gauragangur is a typical coming of age story, a teenager in love, in trouble, writes poetry. In other ways it's really different from most coming of age stories, the way Ormur talks is unusual and not like any teenager - now a days at least - would talk. It was difficult to imagine that any young actor at all could pull it off. I read all the praise Alexander Briem got from the critics for his first leading role as Ormur and was afraid that they were overreacting. But no! He guy is fantastic! So natural in this difficult role that it's unbelievable. His good looks do not spoil either. It will be exciting to see what the future holds for him! Gauragangur is not the best movie I've seen but it's fun and Alexander Briem makes me want to see it again!
