Editorial Review

Behind the Camera: Director and co-writer Baltasar Kormakur is a popular actor and director in Iceland. He made "101 Reykjavik" and "Regina!"

The Skinny: In this Icelandic film, an elderly factory owner being pressured to sell his fishing business gathers his family to discuss the matter. But he discovers that talking with his relatives is as difficult as facing the increasingly modernized fishing industry that threatens his livelihood.

Points of Interest: The movie, based on a play by Olafur Haukur Simonarson, was Iceland's most recent submission for Best Foreign Language Picture at the Oscars.
