Storyline

Hannes is an employee at the Institute for State Supervision. He has such complete faith in the bureaucratic system that he is secretly developing the SuperCode Databank - a mega-databank of personal ID numbers through which everyone's behaviour can be monitored. One day, Hannes's computer is stolen - and the SuperCode with it. Afraid to tell the police about his illegal work, he goes after the thief himself and ends up a victim of the very system he worked so hard to strengthen - but then Hannes has a revelation...

Best ever
14 October 2005 | by gudnithoSee all my reviews

This is one of the best comedy's i've ever seen. I can't believe all the bad criticism it is getting here! How can that be - i don't know.

I've watched it about 25 times and I still laugh my socks off - it's so funny.

Vidar Vikingsson is great in the movie as Hannes H. Adalsteinsson and the sound was incredible -good enough for an Oscar nominee!!!

One of Hrafn Gunnlaugsson's true greats. I would recommend it to everyone.

A PERFECT 10

Hope you'll see it.
