A heavy drama about loss and how to cope.
26 January 2020 | by william-eugenssonSee all my reviews

Score:

Entertainment value: 4 Visuals: 6 Soundtrack: 7 Plot: 6 World building and depth: 6 Characters and dialog: 6 Total: 6

The good: The dialog is deep and Ingemundurs relationship with his grandaughter Salka is interesting to watch. It is quite visually interesting as usual to watch the Icelandic landscape.

The bad: A bit too heavy for my taste, it did feel a bit pointless at some point on how he handles situations.
