Icelandic writer/director Dagur Kári embraces the deadpan, absurdist comedy of Finland's Aki Kaurismäki and Norway's Bent Hamer, but in place of the usual laconic antihero, he offers Cox's bellowing, Beethoven-maned troglodyte.
It's a strange thing, this type of whimsy. Kari offers us ideas in place of characters, and yet he expects us to see through these ideas to the real-life conditions they represent -- and then to respond to them in kind.
I will not -- I must not -- tell you what happens at the end of this movie, except to say I was stupefied that anyone in modern times (i.e., since 1910) would have the gall to sell such cornball at retail.
