Critic Reviews for The Swan (Svanurinn)
Although the screenplay occasionally falters as a result of the predictable melodrama, The Swan is elevated by Martin Neumeyer's cinematography (there are times when I wished this was a travelogue) and Grima Valsdottir's committed performance.
Though occasionally overwrought in its ethereal tangents, "The Swan" has strong things going for it...
It doesn't always manage to stay afloat, but its center never wavers, with Valsdóttir delivering a bracingly unsentimental portrayal of a perceptive outsider weathering an often grim awakening.
A coming-of-age drama that's as beautiful and brutal as the remote, rural landscape of northern Iceland where it takes place.
"The Swan" is not a film that wants for drama. But despite the upheaval, the director Asa Helga Hjorleifsdottir never displays the passion that her characters suggest in their stories.
