Movie Info

In 1950s Iceland, a sassy widow named Freyja (Margrét Vilhjálmsdóttir) arrives home from America with a newer, slimmer look and a mental list of grievances. Not one to stay single long, Freyja moves in with her aunt, uncle and shrewd young cousin, Agga (Ugla Egilsdóttir), and quickly begins looking for a new husband. She manages to charm a number of local bachelors, including Björn (Heino Ferch), but when men start turning up dead, Agga suspects Freyja of murder.

Audience Reviews for The Seagull's Laughter (Mávahlátur)

  • Mar 02, 2013
    A little fun in Iceland as one of the local girls returns from America with a layer of teflon and razorblades and proceeds to shake up the locals bigtime. The only flaw in this was that the newly Americanized "bad girl" still seemed not soooo very bad to me, but then I'm American, so what do I know. A little fun.

    A fantastic dark comedy from Iceland. Beautiful Freyja, recently widowed, returns from America to compete with the local ladies for the attention and affection of the island's most eligible bachelors. She'll stop at nothing to obtain what she wants: arson, battering delinquent little boys, flinging live cats at her mother-in-law, maybe even murder(?).
