Respected surgeon Finnur’s concern for his unstable daughter Anna is heightened when she brings new boyfriend Óttar home and it becomes clear that he is a toxic influence and a catalyst for her drug habit. As Finnur attempts to take control of the situation for Anna’s sake, things quickly spiral out of hand, while Óttar’s arrogance and sense of power become increasingly problematic. This dark, shadowy and riveting thriller from auteur Baltasar Kormákur (who also stars) boasts strong performances, sweeping Icelandic vistas and a tension that is never compromised by implausibility.
