Just Wow
5 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

I actually don't want to talk about the quality of the production, the rather awesomeness of the acting, the underlying wonderful weirdness of the story. What is it about Icelandic cinema that just makes it work, repeatedly, on steroids.

They have done it again. Seriously good job well done. I really am in awe. A must see for those who are interested in how to make it just work.

For students, do not ignore this. Just think why the BBC found it worthy. Yes I could go on, but this really just does speak for itself. Go forth, and meh, these guys are just a little bit good.

Aargh! Apparently I have not yet reached the word count. Bugger. I don't actually want to talk about the actors, or indeed the system, or indeed anything actually about the production. It really DOES speak for itself.
