Movie Info

An aging couple decide to make the most of the time they have left in this lighthearted but poignant drama. Thornier Kristmundsson (Gisli Halldorsson) has spent most of his life working a farm in the northern part of Iceland. Thornier decides to retire, so he relocates to Reykjavik, where he moves in with his daughter and her family. However, the younger members of the family don't get along with Thornier, and in time his daughter sends him off to a retirement home. While at the home, he meets a fellow resident named Stella (Sigridur Hagalin), whom Thornier loved as a young man. Thornier and Stella quickly renew their friendship, and one day they sneak away from the home, swipe a jeep, and head for the country, hoping to pay a final visit to the town where they both grew up. Boern Natturunnar was the first film from Iceland to earn an Academy Award nomination as Best Foreign Film. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
