rated for 0 + years
Father's Estate caused more public controversy than any other Icelandic film before. It struck out against the long-held romantic view of the countryside, the pervasive power of the cooperative societies, the bondage of the land and the great deception that men are better Icelanders for eking out their lives in the country. The pleasures of rural life have become a nightmare and the tragedy really lies in not being able to get away, to be chained to the land, a prey to poverty and social isolation.
