Storyline

A young girl breaks up from her petit bourgeoisie home and her piano lessons to lead an entirely new life, as one of the personnel at an institution for juvenile delinquents in a remote part of Northern Iceland. It is the 1970s and the young people in charge of the place are heavily into flower power, sitar music and solving problems by frank talk sessions with the delinquents. However, the hippies, who themselves despise authority, soon find their own authority under attack by the rebellious youngsters, especially after the arrival of a mysterious young girl. Then a violent incident occurs that will have a decisively detrimental effect on relations at the institution. Written by Anonymous

Tillsammans meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
30 January 2008 | by kuvshinSee all my reviews

Just saw it at the Goteborg Film Festival. It starts as low-scale soap opera, but later you could feel some mood in it. Most of the film set in the 70s, in lonely isle where few young criminals and their hippie supervise rs live together in a farm. Some of kids are really insane and cruel, and their prisoners are too idealistic and too much into light drugs and music. Sometimes it's look like Tillsammans meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but for sure never never equals both films. It'is very interesting, how progressive methods of correction blend together with wildness. Kids are live by their own and even allowed to smoke, but some girls were sent here only because they were raped by their relatives and one of boys is castrated by authorities to prevent any acts of aggression. But the main attraction of the film is Arnmundur Ernst Björnsson as a young thief, he is really could be an Icelandic version of Alain Delon.
