What begins as a richly textured portrait of loss gradually descends with dreamlike tenor into something more offbeat and shocking in Hlynur Pálmason’s follow-up to his award-winning debut Winter Brothers (a 2018 ND/NF selection). A bereft former police chief (Ingvar Sigurdsson), whose golden years are spent caring for his granddaughter and remodeling a house, begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife. As past memories take on new meaning, his suspicion turns obsessive and imperils those around him.  With breathtaking cinematography by Maria von Hausswolff, Pálmason finds seemingly boundless new ways to capture the volatile climate, the elemental delights and estrangement of Iceland’s east coast, and the unpredictable nature of grief.
