New York

Country Wedding

by

(Valdis Oskarsdottir, 2008).
When was the last time you saw an Icelandic road movie? This ensemble comedy marks the promising directorial debut of the editor of a number of recent Scandinavian films. It concerns a dysfunctional family en route by bus to a wedding in the beautiful Icelandic countryside. Everything that can go wrong does. The pic goes on a bit too long, but it’s well-acted and Ms. Oskarsdottir manages to walk the fine line between hilarity and despair. New York premiere.
