A White, White Day

Director: Hlynur Palmason
Year Released: 2019
Rating: 2.0

Police officer/grandfather/widower Ingimundur (Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson) is busy working on his new house and grieving over the death of his wife - her car went off the side of the road - before stumbling on a video of her having an affair, which puts him in a total rage.  It's a belabored mood piece that has occasional lapses into the pretentious - that endlessly rolling rock had me giggling, not to mention the morbid kids show that must have been written by someone in a depressive state - and an ending that's inconclusive: fantasies separated from reality are nice but seriously, what is he going to do next now that he's made a mess of things?  Furthermore, what exactly happened in the marriage that led to her seeking a form of escape?  Special mention needs to be made of Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir playing Ingimundur's spirited granddaughter: if she keeps acting, she might have a very bright future.
