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

Multiple stories going on that are pulled together neatly at the end. I suppose you could call it a very funny tragedy, too. Acting and directing are well done. Even if your only intent is to capture additional insight into the land of Bjork (Iceland), you'll come away surprised and satisfied.
