Great acting. Authentic portrayal.
7 September 2018 | by Morten_5See all my reviews

World premiere at 43rd Toronto International Film Festival - TIFF18.

Icelandic writer-director Baldvin Zophoníasson clearly has a talent for bringing out great performances from his actors. The commitment from Elín Sif Halldórsdottir, Eyrún Björk Jakobsdóttir and Kristín Þóra Haraldsdóttir is strikingly profound.
