rated for 0 + years
A social drama unfolds in a Reykjavik slum. There is a single mum with four kids. A dubious thug. A kid who is hazed and has only one friend, his schizophrenic neighbour. Ragnar Bragason shot in black and white and created a powerful symphony, orchestrating themes like revenge and retaliation, examining watered down roles of parents and children. In fact, the sequel is called Parents.
