A police chief in a small Icelandic town (Ingvar Sigurðsson, in his Cannes award-winning role) is not over the passing of his wife. He can’t let go of the feeling she was hiding a secret from him. A throwback to vintage Icelandic countryside obsessive dramas, this noir has a unique feeling of “place.” The stunning cinematography, and the natural beauty of the countryside gives the film a character all its own.–Ready Steady Cut
