extremely taut and realistic heist/crime movie from Iceland. the pace is fast and the writing is sharp, and the whole thing is one of the best-crafted and most satisfying movies i’ve seen in years.

i’ll level with you, i resisted going to see this because i hadn’t really seen a Scandinavian movie that had no one staring out a gray window for 10 minutes, wearing a tattered Cosby sweater and thinking about their dead friend, expressing less than 10 total lines of dialog. this movie kicked my ass and took my name.
