In a remote Icelandic town, Ingimundur, an off-duty police chief and doting grandfather, begins to suspect that his late wife was having an affair with a local man. Gradually his obsession for uncovering the truth endangers himself and those he loves. Winner of the Cannes Critics Week Rising Star Award and nominated for 12 EDDA Awards (Icelandic Oscars), this is a remarkable, elegant, yet eerily gripping tale of love and loss.

You do really need to see this marvellously conceived and sustained slice of life, which achieves an austere Beckettian affirmation of the fulfilment of keeping on, even in the most personally daunting of circumstances … Dreamlike and intense, the film inexorably draws you into its grizzly old guy’s exterior and interior landscape.  Trevor Johnston, Little White Lies
