Viewing Notes

I love this theater when no one is here.

This is a really good survival tale. Not sure if it’s based on a true story but it feels like it. Maybe two pages of dialogue as most of this story is told by visuals and emotions. Excellent cinematography and Mads performance. You feel the anguish in his expressions. Love how it sets up the plot and stakes. Haven’t seen many Icelandic films so that’s cool too. Seeing this in an empty theater also empathized the sheer loneliness of the experience.
