Much Better Than These 6 Critics Would Have You Believe
I gave this very worthy flick 10 stars just to redress the balance of the negative reviews it has received here.
Works on all levels. The dramatic tension is consistent throughout. The father/daughter relationship is very realistic, particularly her lack of self awareness and immaturity wich are very recognisable traits of addicts.
Gísli Örn Garðarsson was convincing as Ottar. He wasn't painted as just a two dimensional villain. Just as real villains are not just villains. They love, have families, have a sense of humour, pets and hobbies and are often victims of bigger villains than themselves.
I laud Baltasar Kormakur as both a fine director and actor.
