Trivia

The dream scene with the horses is not as clear as it should be. In the book, Páll had three siblings, not two as is shown. Four horses = four siblings. See more »

Wonderful, compassionate film.
4 October 2001 | by rodrigo_maiaSee all my reviews

Having a close experience with one such patient is probably the best reason why I had my heart rushing throughout the entire film. Intense, sensible, moral and revealing, and don't forget to check out the marvellous sound track. Really good.
