Brilliant in every way
9 January 2001 | by -=mAlkAv=-See all my reviews

This is the best Icelandic movie ever made, brilliant acting, directing and music. It moves you and it shows you something new, teaches you but also entertains you. You should also read the book if you can but I don't know if it is available in English. A must see.
