  • What's striking about A White, White Day is the way that Pálmason juxtaposes symbolic abstraction like that with acute psychological detail.

  • Palmason boldly risks audience disenfranchisement by pushing his disturbing story to unexpected lengths dramatically and stylistically, thereby winning a creative wrestling match with a potentially intransigent narrative.

  • [Ingvar] Sigurdsson achieves the difficult task of showing us a man who is repressing his emotions yet giving us enough access to them to understand what's going on, to look beyond the bursts of rage and see somebody who is full of love and warmth.

  • Performances are often unsettlingly naturalistic and understated, creating characters who are mercurial and unpredictable.

  • A fascinating character, splendidly portrayed...

  • Palmason's film is as much about the way men damage themselves by internalising their weaknesses, as it is about learning to cope when your perception of a deceased loved one has been turned on its head.
