Ófærð is an amazing, dark, slow-burning drama, where you feel the tension building from the very first moment.
Ólafur Darri Ólafsson depicted a single-father (for the time-being), living with his parents-in-law, working as the chief of police with so much details and such psychological depth that it leaves the watcher in awe. He is strong but easily-hurt, he is tormented by his love to his wife and still naivelly believes that maybe, just maybe everything will be fine.
The story - wow, so many paths that it takes us on, such tangled connections between closed-knit society of a small community.
The scenery - breath-taking; I'm from Poland so we do have some strong winters, but the creepy atmosphere of being completelly cut-off by the snow fall is something I don't know :) And it worked for me - I was binge-watching the series with 38 degrees Celsius outside and I felt frozen to the bone :)
It was a combination of the story and scenery that made the film so thrilling.
Overall - great acting, good story and somewhat surprising ending.
