It’s hard to be objective about this Icelandic film about a Japanese man looking for the site of his parents’ death. After a vacation to Iceland, we searched high and low for movies set there. There just aren’t that many. So when this movie came out and it didn’t suck, we fell in love. I suppose its quirkiness is a little formulaic (an American outlaw and his girlfriend run from the Iceland police) and its production value is pretty low (it looks cheap), but the scenery is great, the story isn’t something you’ll see every day, and it doesn’t suck.
