Fast moving action thriller
15 February 2001 | by hepworth2See all my reviews

Foxtrot is a fast moving action thriller that depicts the deterioration of a relationship between two half-brothers who become involved in an attempted rape and murder of a young hitch-hiker in a remote part of Iceland.

The film stars three of Iceland's leading young actors - Steinarr Olafsson, Valdimar Flyngenring and Maria Ellingsen. It was shot in English and the combination of an up-tempo soundtrack and some stunning visuals taken from many of Iceland's most dramatic volcanic landscapes, gives us a unique action packed thriller for audiences of all ages.

Foxtrot opens with the two brothers, Tommy (Steinarr Olafsson), and Kiddy (Valdimar Flygenring), being reuinted after the elder's return from a star-studded career as a professional footballer in mainland Europe. All is not as it seems and their warm reunion soon turns into a twenty-four hour liaison with death. In just one day all concerned are forced to confront circumstances that most people never encounter in a lifetime.

Foxtrot can best be described as a "right of passage" film set to the highest traditions of the American "road movie". As a fast-paced youth picture it is sure to take its place amongst the best.
