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.
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.
this is the 1st time as far as i could recall to have watched a film from Iceland, complete w/its gorgeous setting. this film's kinda mixed in its treatment as parts are outright hilarious, nostalgic, serious, tragic, and meditative. if it was made longer than what i saw, it would have turned out to be boring. but then story was well crafted and awesome in its narrative---i think it's the very strength of this movie. i understand now a very good way of presenting the topic of "how to commit murder/s and getting away with it" on film----go see how it was done in this movie.
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(?).
