In a remote Icelandic town, reticent former policeman Ingimundur (Ingvar E Sigurðsson) passes his time visiting his old colleagues at the station, renovating a house and doting on his granddaughter Salka (Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir). These are all distractions from the heartache that haunts him following the tragic death of his beloved wife. Looking though some old mementos, his latent detective instincts kick in and he starts to suspect that his wife had been unfaithful to him. He becomes consumed in finding out the truth. Sigurðsson delivers a revelatory performance at the centre of Hlynur Pálmason’s (Winter Brothers, 2017) poignant, original study of grief. MH
