Storyline

With a B.Sc. in software engineering and a lust for adventure, big city boy Tommi has made solid plans for the future with his girlfriend Rakel. They decide to spend a summer in the Wild West-fjords of Iceland before going to the capital to start a life together. Things change quickly in the Wild West and before he knows it, Tommi has to rely on his colourful co-workers at the Golf Club in Bolungarvík to make it through the summer. That is easier said than done when they're dealing with an extremely demanding boss, nature at it's finest and aggressive wild life. Written by Ævar Örn Jóhannsson

All Around Enjoyable
6 September 2016 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on a flight back from Iceland. I'm so glad I ended with this one, because it was just so enjoyable.

The basic plot is that a young man from the city goes to the country for the summer to work and be with his girlfriend. He arrives to find himself at a not-so-well-maintained golf course with some oddballs for coworkers. Things don't go as planned and he has to rethink his current and future goals.

I loved his coworkers and their interactions with each other. Simple comedic entertainment. Really, this movie was more comedy than anything else, with a bit of serious life planning thrown in the mix. At the end, the main character took what seemed like a bad situation and learned to enjoy his life as it was. It's also family friendly, which is always a plus.

Let me just add, I'm amazed that this is the lead's first acting experience (and that he really is fluent in multiple languages and can paraglide). Bravo!
