Hlynur (Gudnason) is a twenty-something who still lives at home with his single mother, drinking the long days away and surfing the internet for pornography. But Hlynur gets the wake up call of his life when he beds his mother's beautiful Spanish friend, Lola (Abril), only to discover she's his mum's lesbian lover. When the infidelity is revealed, the film becomes a comedy of unease, charting similarly queasy territory as David O Russell (Spanking the Monkey). It's a smarting black comedy with a snow-white background – and the pulsating score by Damon Albarn emphasises the film's cool credentials.
