Movie Info

Iceland, Christmas time. As everyone prepares for the holidays, a peculiar atmosphere falls upon the country revealing emotions of both excitement and concern. In the middle of the countryside, an abandoned farm is burning. In a school, a children's choir is singing Christmas carols. In a slaughterhouse, chickens are parading along a rail. In a museum, a mother is arguing with her ex-husband on the phone. In a living room, a young girl is making her grandmother try on her new virtual reality headset... Through 56 scenes, Echo draws a portrait, both biting and tender, of modern society.

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • A multipart portrait of contemporary Iceland emerges that feels necessarily somewhat incomplete, given time constraints, but always deeply human.

  • Once a sense of rhythm is grasped, things fall into place, and audiences will exit the cinema debating their favorite scenes, recalling a wealth of graceful, humane interactions.

  • The disparate vignettes of Echo are held together by strange rhymes and resonances, so that social, generational, economic and political conversations and contradictions are juxtaposed between, and sometimes even within, individual scenes.

    Nov 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film ultimately coheres into a vivid portrait of contemporary Iceland that's equal parts bleak and beguiling.

    Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Echo] is an ambitious, bird's eye overview of human behavioral observations between moments of tumultuousness and familiarity, almost ethnographic in its attempt to present a modern portrait of objective interaction.

    Aug 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Stretching from the first twinkling tree light to the last spent firework of a New Year's dawn, it captures a sense of the way we live now.
