Two womens spirit, perseverance, and triumph intersect in deeply moving film
22 July 2019 | by safsurferSee all my reviews

This slow, but correctly paced, film is one that every person should see. It's not the type of film for everyone though. This is one of those films that is straight forward basically one main plot and comes directly at you pushing its message as the main theme and leaves it for you to decide in the end. The message is clear.....life is hard and when you least expect it, there's good out there. This film shows the struggle of two different women and how they are working to make a better life for their families. One a native Icelandic, one an asylum seeking refugee, two totally different women, on seperate yet basically the same path that intersects and shows us that kindness and perseverance can prevail. The mood is somber, the scenery cold bleak, the pace slow. This film works though do to the controversial subject being explored and the way the actors, direction, production and script put it together. Won't be for everyone but worth the watch.
