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.

The worst Icelandic film so far...
1 December 2000 | by martin_bendaSee all my reviews

I was really very disappointed. Boring, confusing, not funny.

I have seen much better movies of the similar principle like Fiasko wanted to be. (Much better is for example Swedish film Tic-Tac or Czech Knoflikari). This film had some good scenes but very few. It was like from today's Reykjavik, stories of three people which were connected just by chance. It was too weird.

It is really very bad film. But I understand it. I've seen like ten Icelandic films so far and every of them was really great. It's impossible to produce just good films... So in general, I do recommend Icelandic cinematography!
