Movie Info

Baldvin Zophoniasson's multi-character drama Life In a Fishbowl focuses on a handful of modern Icelanders whose lives intersect in unexpected ways. A successful but severely alcoholic poet befriends a single mother who works at a children's school during the day, but picks up extra cash at night as a call girl. Other characters include a former soccer player trying to find success in big business while staying true to his wife, the retired athlete's cynical mentor, and the parents of the teacher who are unaware of their daughter's moonlighting activities. Life In a Fishbowl screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Life In A Fishbowl

All Critics (4)

As these three lost souls cross paths in different configurations, we see a subtly drawn portrait of Iceland burdened by a troubled history of incestuous sagas and financial crises.

March 4, 2015

A film of dark material with flickers of soulful hope amid its doom and gloom... that help it transcend its more routine elements.

February 25, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

An intelligent script and strong acting bring life and depth to the characters.

February 23, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's slick, to be sure, but all the hand-wringing shakes out very little insight into the characters or their sadness, much less what lies beyond.
