Storyline

Karl, an old age pensioner, is busy chasing after an amnesic old screen legend. Julia, Karl's granddaughter, is torn between a mediocre bank manager and a wild sailor, and tells them both she is pregnant, but is she really? Steingerdur, Julia's mother, has a wild crush on a preacher who has a serious drinking problem, and ends up with a dead stripper in his jacuzzi. The characters cross each other as the film progresses, until the three interwoven strands of the story finally come together in an explosive and hilarious crescendo full of surprises. Written by Zik Zak filmworks

nothing special really
16 December 2003 | by goviSee all my reviews

24 hours in the life of a grandfather, a mother and a daughter- looking for love in different ways. It does have its funny moments (the worshippers and the like) but overall, it is disappointing. And if you're looking for landscapes or something to see from Reykjavik - nothing either :-(
