Children of Nature
(Born Natturunnar)
Iceland/Germany/Norway - 1991
Directed by Fridrik Thor Fridriksson


 

A lovely heartwarming tale about Thorgein, an old man who is brought from his rural home to Reykjavik to live with his grown daughter and her family.  Not made to feel comfortable there, he is checked in to a retirement home in the city.  In the retirement home, he finds Stella, his childhood sweetheart who has been waging her own little private war with the nursing home.  Stella is miserable there and dreams only of returning to her seaside home in the village where she and Thorgein grew up.   Determined not to die in the city, Thorgein and Stella prepare for their escape while rekindling their feelings for one another.  They steal a jeep and make the break, into the stark, haunting landscape of rural Iceland.

Children of Nature was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film (1992).  Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson won the award for Best Composing from the European Film Awards (1992) for the original music score.  Cinematographer Ari Kristinsson won the award for Best Artistic Contribution from the Montreal World Film Festival (1991).

Runtime:  85 Minutes

From:  "Susi"

""Children of Nature" is a great film showing a lot of Icelandic lifestyle and traditions. The images of nature are especially beautiful showing the country from it's most fascinating side.  From the beginning the watchers feel a close connections to the feelings of the old man, stressed by the kind of filming. You can imagine how confusing the big city is for him and how un-able he is to deal with it until he knows what to do. A thing I┤m not sure about are the images when they reached their destination and Stella walks along the coast remembering her past. Did they use authentic material? I'm really not certain.  Else of that the film is fantastically mystic and the music is
more than well-fitting."
