Critic Reviews for The Seagull's Laughter (Mávahlátur)
Seagull often is on the verge of melodrama, but in the best sense of the genre, where real life is exaggerated but never to the point of being unrecognizable.
Some scenes drag, but Seagull's Laughter is still delightful.
An uncommonly engaging comedy with ripe tragic undertones.
Writer-director Agust Gudmundsson skillfully balances romantic comedy and melodrama with a coming-of-age story and morality play.
Audience Reviews for The Seagull's Laughter (Mávahlátur)
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(?).
