Is he the village idiot or a genius in disguise? 17 year-old Noi drifts through life on a remote fjord in the north of Iceland, cut off from the outside world by a shroud of snow. He dreams of escape from his white-walled prison with Iris, a pretty young city girl who works in a local gas station, but his clumsy breaks for freedom spiral out of control amd seem doomed to end in failure. Featuring a standout performance from Tomas Lemarquis as the film's oddball anti-hero, Dagur Kari's brilliant debut feature is an offbeat coming-of-age tale with a smart, darkly comic twist.
A wonderboy and drop-out on an Icelandic village scale, Noi (17), dreams of escaping from his remote fjord with the girl from the filling station. Noi (17) drifts through life in a remote fjord in northern Iceland. In the winter, the fjord is completely cut off from the outside world, encircled by terrifying mountains under a thick layer of snow. Noi dreams of escaping from this white prison, together with Iris, a city girl who works at the local filling station. But Noi's clumsy attempts to escape don't get him anywhere, and only get out of hand.
