nice look at the people and beauty of the Faroe Islands
26 March 2003 | by soren19bSee all my reviews

This film is worth seeing for the scenery alone. It is beautifully shot, and it also provides interesting insights into the ways of

the natives of the Faroe Islands (located between Iceland and Norway). The story itself is entertaining and the acting quite good. The movie deals with a clash of generations and coming to maturity in a traditional society. I got to see this at the Cleveland Intl. Film Festival and it whetted my appetite to explore Icelandic filmmaking more. Definitely worth a look.
