This Icelandic psychological thriller has been described as a masterclass in building tension. Seemingly, very little happens in the first hour or so. But we shouldn’t be lulled into thinking director Hlynur Palmason is wasting our time. He’s deftly setting us up for a white-knuckle roller coaster ride to an unpredictable ending. Fifty-year- old policeman, Ingimundur, loses his wife when her car plunges over a foggy cliff. The portrayal of his ensuing grief explores the nature of anger, loneliness and the human capacity for love.  But, perhaps more compelling, is the depiction of revenge and hyper-masculinity because he begins to suspect his wife was having an affair.  The relationship between the grieving husband and his captivating eight-year-old granddaughter, Salka, offers welcome relief. In the words of one reviewer, ‘strikingly original.’
