Beautifully filmed tribute to the Icelandic landscape and the people that used to live there
The film has some amazing imagery, it is intriguing, it has drama, mistery and above all, it shows the dominant force of nature, that is depicted as far more powerful than the ephemeral characters that try to make a living on earth.
I found it as an odd to nature, to specifically the Icelandic harsh but majestic natural landscape and to the way people used to respect this. It is a great movie in many ways.
However, it’s plot is slow-moving, the scenes are extremely long, do not expect to be entertained as it is the complete opposite of a fast-action, Hollywood-style movie. It is often rather boring and there is the real danger that the 2 hours and 23 minutes to pass rather slow to you as it did to me. I has the impression that the movie could have been just as deep and beautiful lasting only say 1 hours and 45 minutes.
Saw this at TIFF and was blown away. The cinematography and scenery are beautiful, and really drew you in to the setting. The inclusion of short experimental imagery was a brilliant touch that helped the viewer focus on the environment/nature going on around the characters and almost made the ecosystem a character in its own right.
Plot wise, this did not follow the arc I was expecting, and only exceeded my expectations. Other creators might have softened the ending, or toned down some of the harsher events, but I felt that it perfectly suited the tone of the story and mirrored what I imagine what life must have actually been like in that time and place.
In addition, the casting was spot on and the acting superb. (Ida Mekkin Hlynsdottir steals each scene she’s in, and the dog is pretty much the most adorable creature ever.)
