Directed by Dagur Kari
Iceland's beautiful and stark winter landscape frames
this bittersweet tale of a misunderstood, albino teenager who rebels against
the conformity imposed by his small town. Surrounded by a litany of bizarre
characters, Noi (Tomas Lemarquis) feels trapped and isolated until he meets
Iris (Elin Hansdottir). When the young girl suggests that they flee their
hopeless situation, Noi resorts to questionable methods to make their dream
a reality. "...an intriguing and extremely clever blending of comedy,
tragedy and coming-of-age angst" (Rich Cline, Film Threat).
Originally released as Noi Albinoi. Icelandic with English subtitles.
