A sensitively staged coming-of-age story.
When his mother heads off to Africa with her new Danish husband, Avi (Atli Oskar Fjalarsson) is sent to live with his boozy father (Ingvar E Sigurdson) whom he barely knows in a remote Icelandic village. The scenery may well be beautiful, but locals deal with the constant summer light with alcohol. A soulful sadness permeates the story of father and son struggling to understand each other. Rúnar Rúnarsson’s award-winning film is an impressively made delight.
