Back Soon (Skrapp út) (2008)
A writer with a day job that's not quite legal has trouble getting out of the business (and finding her way around town) in this comedy from writer and director Solveig Anspach. Anna Hallgrimsdottir (Didda Jonsdottir) is a poet who has received acclaim for her work both at home and around the world, but being a successful poet doesn't pay especially well and Anna covers the bills by selling marijuana, a product she enthusiastically endorses herself. Anna has lived most of her life in Reykjavik but she's sick and tired of living in Iceland and wants to move elsewhere. Anna has attracted a significant number of loyal customers, and another dealer is willing to pay her handsomely to take over her business and obtain her client list. Anna sets up a meeting with the dealer and she and her brother Tomas (Jorundur Ragnarsson) head out for the rendezvous, but they've been enjoying a bit too much of Anna's product and what should have been a short drive becomes an epic journey and a comedy of errors as they stumble upon an old friend, Siggi (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) who is attempting suicide, pick up a woman named Joy (Joy Doyle) who is trying to find the prison where her boyfriend is doing time, and try to get directions from Raphael (Julien Cottereau), a French literature student who is doing a project on Anna's verse. Skrapp Ut . . . (aka Back Soon) received its North American premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival. … More
