Old crotchety couple elude authorities in Iceland
“Children of Nature” is the first Icelandic film I have ever seen and I was pleasantly surprised. It concerns two former childhood sweethearts (Thorgeir & Stella) who meet in an old age home, escape, and return to their remote hometown.
This film is a nice antidote to most Hollywood movies: the stars are nasty old people, the pace of the film is slow, and there are elements of magical realism. It also doesn’t hurt that the cinematography is excellent and shows off Iceland beautifully.
After seeing this film, I get the impression that Iceland is a weird and wonderful place and I hope to visit soon!
P.S. If you liked “Wings of Desire” you’ll appreciate the cameo by the angel Damiel (Bruno Ganz).
I ´ve seen some of the earlier works of Fridrik and with one exception hated them all. He started by insulting the Icelandic nation by doing a horrible (and terribly long film) about one of nation’s greatest writers. Then he did a documentary about Iceland and got almost all of through the windscreen of a car, driving too fast. “Rock in Reykjavik” was a pleasant documentary and really fun to watch. But this film puts him among the world’s most talented directors and for a small nation, that is a lot of responsibillity. Since he did “Börn Náttúrunnar” he hasn´t done anything to speak of but it´s hard to tell whether he has passed his peak, or the best has yet to come.
