This is a movie you can't miss ;)
21 October 2006 | by irisdogg_1See all my reviews

The most brilliant Icelandic movie ever made!!! It is truly fascinating how the Icelanders have made such a complicated plot around something a simple as a retrieval of a TV-remote for your mother.

Sódóma Reykjavík, like it's called here in Iceland, is the best comedy ever made in Iceland. There is not a single person in the country who has not seen it because it's just that amazing. The humor might be slightly too Icelandic for some too follow but in a way that just makes it funnier.

I strongly suggest the usage of subtitles. The translation into English completely ruins the movie. Don't let this one slip past,especially not if you want to know how the people in Iceland are, or just too impress us when you visit ;)
