Englar alheimsins (Angels of the Universe) Reviews
Great acting by Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson that has featured many Icelandic favorites of mine lately. The plot is deep but slightly humorus. Naturally it can be connected with "One Flew Over Cocoo's Nest". There are no good guys or badguys here, but there are plenty of great dialogue and monologue. Never overdone but sadly I was never too interested here. More my fault than the movie's probably, but even if I missed out on some smaller parts and some of the chatting I felt I got a pretty good hang of it.
Not very artsy, but not your standard film either. Sigur Rós deliver a smashing soundtrack, that's need a mention! Nice film about mental issues, love and life in general - a bit pretentious and less original than I would prefer but this is still solid stuff. The Óli-character, portrayed by the growing name Baltasar Kormákur, is looking a lot like Colin Farrel. Funny.
6.5 out of 10 cigars.
Ingvart Eggert SigurÃ°sson is a brilliant actor and FriÃ°rÃk Ã?Ã³r FriÃ°rÃksson is one of the best directors the world has ever seen. This film is realistic (well, it's a true story), the music is great and the dialogue is unique and beautiful.
liked the drums though...
