“This film hits just about every sweet spot possible”

The Guardian

A bewitching 1980-set odyssey of self-discovery and acceptance across the beautifully photographed landscapes of Iceland.

Middle-aged and disappointed, Jón (Þröstur Leó Gunnarsson) spends his days knitting and listening to the radio with his domineering elderly mother (Kristbjörg Kjeld) on their rural Icelandic farmstead.

With his life overtaken with looking after his home and his mother’s needs, Jón’s isolated world is upended when she suddenly passes away. But having left him a series of instructions to follow upon her death, Jón sets out on a journey across Iceland to honour her final wishes – including being buried in Eyrarbakki, her home village.

Strapping her into his Ford Cortina, and with the beloved (and scene-stealing) family dog Brezhnev in tow, Jón sets off on his strange odyssey. With his late mum still relentlessly nagging him from the back seat, he meets a variety of peculiar and charming strangers en route, and encounters some ghosts from his past too…
