Quotes & Reviews:
“…the cinematography is striking, sound and music are superb and the two leading actors — who carry much of the movie by themselves — both give telling performances. Iceland has produced a few compelling thrillers in recent years, and this has to be counted among the most atmospheric and intriguing.”

– Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
“Brimming with suspense, dark romance and the more obscure aspects of the human psyche, Thoroddsen’s film proves that you do not necessarily require a hefty budget and a large crew to create a masterpiece.”
– Gay Essential
