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?

Disturbing, yet entertaining.
9 October 2019 | by zakarylewillSee all my reviews

As a bit of a squeamish person, some sequences in this film were uncomfortable to watch, but the plot and characters had me on the edge of my seat. As my first introduction to Icelandic cinema, this was definitely a solid watch.
