Baldur Hvíti was BRILLIANT !!!
20 January 2000 | by djninoSee all my reviews

This film is not only the best Icelandic movie I've seen but also one of the best movies I have seen ever. I liked all those little boys who were in the leading role but I especially like the one who played Baldur (Sigfús Sturluso). His perfomance was excellent in this film just like the others he has played in.
