In a remote Icelandic town, an off-duty police chief begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died in a tragic accident two years earlier. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth takes over his life and begins to endanger himself and his loved ones.
Hlynur Pálmason’s (Winter Brothers) engrossing second feature marked the arrival of a major new voice in international cinema. Upending revenge-thriller genre tropes, the film is a simmering, profound story of grief—aided by a quietly heartbreaking performance from Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson.
