Storyline

Sharp-suited Erik represents the aspirational face of modern Iceland. Atli, a petty criminal just released from prison, is stuck in a downward spiral. The distance between these two very different brothers vanishes when the duo teams up to smuggle cocaine into Iceland, inside plastic pellets swallowed by a young Polish mule, Sofia. But things go wrong when rule-breaking cop Lena starts closing in on them and Sofia falls sick. With the drugs yet to reach their destination and a rival gang demanding a slice of the action, time is a luxury that the brothers can't afford. Charismatic anti-hero Erik's ability to stay one step ahead is tested to the limit - how many lives is he willing to sacrifice to sustain his own?

Two can play that game
11 February 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Or maybe they can't ... it's as always rather complicated. And everything is not black and white as the movie shows. There is a lot of gray in here, though I guess you could argue it's the darker shades of grey. While the story itself is pretty simple, the characters are quite complex.

Overall this thriller will not be an easy watch. The struggles that are depicted in here are close to reality though. The combination of people and events may be a bit too coincidental for some, but it's a movie after all. And it the storylines of all characters work. Be it bleak or hopeful, whichever way it is you hope this goes - don't let the ending form your overall opinion one way or the other. More than decent with really good acting
