(15) 94min

Compelling Icelandic police procedural thriller about a jaundiced middle-aged cop on the trail of a decades old mystery involving rape, corruption and murder. Writer/director (and leading Icelandic actor) Baltasar 101 Reykavik Kormákur brings some really fresh and haunting twists to the familiar narrative. Read the full review and exclusive interview with Kormákur next issue.
