Boring.
12 November 1999 | by SkaVengerSee all my reviews

This is the only film I've ever seen from Iceland. It tells the story of a young boy in the 50's seeing for the first time the american movies and everything else that goes on in his life.

The art film in its essence, but on this category I'd recommend 'Through The Olive Tress' or 'La Haine\Hate' and 'Lepa Sepa Lepo Gore\Pretty Village Pretty Flame'.
