The best Icelandic incest comedy ever…

A marvellously subtle comedy of sexual misunderstanding that is never crude, but always smart and amusing. When David introduces his new girlfriend Sunna to his parents it sets in motion a freewheeling comedy drama as his father Gunnar, an author of countless self-help books, realises she is his daughter from an illicit relationship years earlier. With his own relationship in turmoil, Gunnar sets about trying to sabotage his son’s plans to marry Sunna. A delightfully mannered comedy with more than a few twists.
