Critic Reviews for A White, White Day (Hvítur, hvítur dagur)

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (64) | Rotten (3)

  • The film fairly ravishes the senses, with its sense of weather as destiny. All of the performances are solid. Sigurdsson and Hlynsdottir, as grandfather and granddaughter, are like granite: the film succeeds because of their bond.

    July 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What now for a director this eye-poppingly talented? It would be unwise to miss the answer.

    July 8, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There are quirky directorial touches throughout, but Palmason never once loses sight of the central dilemma and builds to a terrifying roadside confrontation between cop and would-be killer.

    Top Critic
  • The mayhem unfolds in some remarkable unbroken takes, yet Pálmason and Sigurdsson never lose sight of the healing that's taking place behind the glowering looks and gun-toting aggression.

    July 3, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • This bizarre and sometimes scary film from Iceland has a way of keeping you off balance and on the edge of your seat.

    July 2, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Riveting and quietly funny from scene to scene. It has this quiet sense of control... It's such a talent behind the lens that you become drawn into this film.
