Synopsis

A remote fishing village in Iceland. Teenage boys Thor and Christian
experience a turbulent summer as one tries to win the heart of a girl
while the other discovers new feelings toward his best friend. When
summer ends and the harsh nature of Iceland takes back its rights,
it's time to leave the playground and face adulthood.

In all such tales of the growing self-awareness of youth, the quality
of the playing from the young cast is crucial, and Guðmundsson has
drawn hugely sensitive performances from his two leads. The
landscapes that surround them may be monumental and memorable,
but the sincerity and naturalness of these two performances is almost
microscopically exact. The Arts Desk

129 minutes, Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson, Iceland 2016 (12)
