Jóhann Jóhannsson, the composer of the main theme and the music for season 1, was the first person from Iceland to win a Golden Globe. He won this for the composing of the music for The Theory of Everything. He composed the music for Trapped together with composer and cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir (who also plays the cello in the theme). Hildur Guðnadóttir has won the Golden Globe for film music in 2020 for the film Joker. See more »
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.
