Review
Blur front man Damon Albarn (who part-owns a bar in Reykjavik with the director) co-composed the score for this laconic comedy of sexual manners. Freely adapted from a chunky bestseller, director Baltasar Kormakur's first feature owes debts to the film-making styles of both Pedro Almodóvar and the Coens — what with wastrel Hlynur (Hilmir Snaer Gudnason) managing to impregnate both his on-off girlfriend, Hofi (Thrudur Vilhjalmsdottir), and Lola (Victoria Abril), the Spanish dance teacher who has just started a lesbian relationship with his newly liberated mother (Hanna Maria Karlsdottir). The combination of Abril's hot-blooded sassiness and Gudnason's cool deadpan is highly effective, but what lingers longest are cinematographer Peter Steuger's snow-speckled backstreets.

Directed by: Baltasar Kormakur

Filmed in: 2000
