Critic Reviews for Brúðguminn (White Night Wedding)
The films uneasy shifts in tone disrupt the sense of rhythm needed for the comic elements to work.
Audience Reviews for Brúðguminn (White Night Wedding)
Irritating & confusing- almost none of the characters is lovable enough to project thyself on; the message of the whole movie looks totally contradicting after all. Too cold, heavy & serious for a comedy but too light for a proper drama. What remain are the acting from the ensemble cast & the landscape of Flatey, Iceland.
An unorthodox wedding caper in which, if you Google Image search the name of the town, you can see a real slice of life: the houses are all there, it truly is a piece of Icelandic culture (I presume... what do I know about Icelandic culture). Someone in Iceland must agree, too, it took home seven of that country's national film awards including best picture. The story focuses on a professor entering his second marriage, this time with one of his students, and the upheaval it causes given the circumstances: he owes her parents a lot of money, and the mysteries around the end of his first marriage, among other things. The professor spends the night before the wedding getting drunk with his friends, and many realizations are made before the wedding is to take place. Very interesting movie, well worth checking out.
