A White, White Day

After his wife passes away, former police officer Ingimundur tries to overcome his grief by reconstructing a house. While going through her things, however, he discovers that the precarious balance he's attained begins to crumble as he questions whether he truly knew his wife. Like the thick layer of fog masking the surrounding landscape, wisps of doubt settle around the grounded widower, feeding his suppressed anger. In his latest picture HlynurPálmason explores the essence of love, which can start out unconditional and selfless only to become obsessive and paralyzing. Maria von Hausswolff's excellent cinematography and Ingvar E. Sigurdsson's performance as the mourning yet defiant widower strengthens this hypnotic drama's emotional punch.
