User Reviews

 
Solid
29 April 2019 | by Call-Me-Mr-SmithSee all my reviews

Icelandic supra-natural drama that develops slowly and meticulously, having personal tragedy and conflicts in a foreground, and financial crisis that rocked Iceland as a background. Typical representative of the Scandinavian cinema, competent and measured, but not without flaws that stem mostly from the use of the genre's common places, and the problematic twist that came without any prior major clues. It will sit better if you are a fan of the Scandinavian movies. Overall, solid 6/10.
