Storyline

Anna Hallgrimsdottir lives in Reykjavik with her two sons. Fed up with the coldness of Iceland, she decides to sell her business to be able to move out of the country. Her business, selling dope, is prosperous, she wants a good price out of it... the dealer whom she'll hand it over to (as well as her mobile : that's how her customers reach her and order the amount they need) tells her he'll have the money within 48 hours. Meanwhile, Anna gets involved in all kinds of Icelandic familial adventures and her kitchen fills up with customers/friends, partying, while waiting for her to comeback, and sell them their daily grass.

Feelgood comedy that feels overlong
25 September 2008 | by vostfSee all my reviews

It's a light comedy and the Icelandic landscapes are stunning. Both points have little connection, still why not put them together if they were going to shoot it there? For all those tourists that only go to the Blue Lagoon, it may be interesting but adds nothing to the comedy (more than that landscapes dissolve the warm feeling created by the ensemble cast).

All in all Back Soon lacks comedic twists and turns. It's a feel-good movie that relishes in its own thin storyline. It drags its feet more often than not, but on the whole the comic tone is fine and makes it an OK movie if you don't expect too much.
