Iceland 2015 100 mins. In Icelandic

Gunnar is a sociologist in his fifties who has written countless self-help books, but that can’t help him as his relationship with his wife is becoming more stressful. When David, their 25-year-old son returns home with Sunna, his attractive new girlfriend, it sets in motion a freewheeling comedy drama as his father realizes she is his daughter from an illicit relationship years earlier. With his own relationship in turmoil, Gunnar sets about trying to sabotage his son’s plans to marry Sunna. Haraldsson’s delightfully-mannered comedy of errors has more than a few twists as the secrets start to fly. In Icelandic with English subtitles.

Genres: Comedy, Drama

Appears in: New Scandinavian Cinema
