101 Reykjavik Reviews

March 22, 2002
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.

There's something juicily amusing about the nonjudgmental way Kormakur views his characters.

101 Reykjavik sometimes seems to be drifting pointlessly, but it keeps on righting itself, with moments of humor and imagination.

Gudnason makes a delightful anti-hero, Abril is a kick in the pants and the snowy locations are nicely integrated.

In spirit, 101 Reykjavk is so Almodvar that it could melt the polar icecap.

For non-Icelandic viewers, 101 Reykjavik is ... of interest for the beautifully photographed glimpse, eccentric though it may be, into life in that little-known country.

Kormakur's need to make the picture fuller drowns it with inconsistency.

Uses a combination of humor, pathos, and general weirdness to good effect.

Finely acted and shot with a beautiful, understated cinematic sweep ... 101 Reykjavk is a poignant, endearingly offbeat work.
