A White, White Day

1h 49m Drama 2019

EARN CINEBUZZ REWARDS THE MORE YOU WATCH! The major Scandinavian success story of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, and Iceland’s Official Selection for the 2020 Oscars, writer/director Hlynur Pálmason confirms the considerable promise of his multi award-winning debut Winter Brothers with this spellbinding and darkly humorous new drama about a stoic grandfather whose emotional reserves are pushed to their limits. Former police chief Ingimundur (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) has struggled ever since he lost his wife to a tragic accident two years earlier. Busying himself with the task of renovating a homestead in the remote Icelandic wilderness, he finds solace in time spent with his spirited young granddaughter, Salka (Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir). But when Ingimundur begins to suspect a local man may have had an affair with his late wife, his detective instincts kick in, fuelling behaviour that becomes increasingly unpredictable… Anchored by Sigurdsson’s towering, white-hot lead performance, a visceral score from Edmund Finnis and utterly breathtaking cinematography by Maria von Hausswolff, Pálmason’s gripping and powerful tale of unconditional love is an unforgettable big-screen experience, and not to be missed.
