ICELAND, Denmark, Sweden | 109 minutes | 2019

In a small town in the Icelandic hinterland, ex-police chief Ingimundur, struggling to recover from his wife’s death two years earlier, begins to suspect she was having an affair with another man. The glacial beauty of Iceland’s landscapes, heightened by a coldly meticulous lens, serves as the backdrop to a portrait of a man whose feverish quest turns to obsession. Star Ingvar E. Sigurdsson’s commanding screen presence and the unsettling score by British composer Edmund Finnis lend finesse to Pálmason’s drama about vengeance, unconditional love and the downward spiral of a grief-stricken widower.
The film will be screened in its original version with french subtitles on October 16th and with english subtitles on October 18th

"... visually arresting and emotionally rewarding. " Screendaily
"Ingimundur is a fascinating character, splendidly portrayed by Ingvar E. Sigurðsson." Screendaily
"Palmason engages in storytelling that’s both powerful and freshly thought out, marking him as a talent to watch." The Hollywood Reporter
