February 24, 2020
101 Reykjavík is a straightforward sort of movie, but its unabashed innocence and stylistic aplomb are wonderfully endearing.

A tightly packed little snowball of a comedy that picks up steam as it rolls along.

Everything about this Icelandic sitcom comedy seemed off kilter.

It's a strange and distant tale that would only appear on Jerry Springer in America but comes off as quirky and cute when presented from the cold Nordic perspective.

Fails because it's nearly impossible to care about the main character.

Kormakur ... balances tones with a smooth, mature confidence.

...there is more intelligence and humor in this 93-minute diamond-in-the-rough than in 10 American coming-of-age flicks.

As a tour through the messy lifestyles of the young and the wasted in Europe's most remote yet hippest capital, it's entertaining and often hilarious.

Hilmer Snaer Gudnason makes Hylner ... weirdly sweet and appealing, and as for the rest of the cast, well, we've yet to see a movie that was not vastly improved by the presence of Victoria Abril.

A times as flatly deadpan as Hylner, at others as passionately eccentric as Abril's Lola, 101 Reykjavik is at least dedicatedly unexpected.

Imagine, if you dare, Ingmar Bergman as a consummate slacker with a wicked sense of pop humour.

The director wisely resists the temptation to treat slackerdom as just a blase counterpoint to the craziness of the world.
