The concept behind Go Quiet was simple: it’s New Year’s Day in Reykjavík, and Jónsi awakens to a trashed house in the wake of his party. He avoids cleaning up and instead procrastinates by playing songs that reflect the night before.

Jónsi's twinkling music and sweetly mournful voice are wonderful -- of course -- but as a "film", this leaves you wanting. The cute premise described in the synopsis is not really there; it's merely a collection of beautifully photographed acoustic performances by Jónsi. The tiniest hint of an actual narrative would have made this much more powerful and cohesive.
