A White, White Day

Hlynur Pálmason, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, 2019o

In a remote Icelandic town, an off duty police chief begins to suspect a local man to have had an affair with his wife, who has recently died in a car accident. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth accumulates and inevitably begins to endanger himself and his loved ones.

Keine Frage, der Isländer Hylnur Pálmason (Winter Brothers) beherrscht das atmosphärische Erzählen in Bildern, er setzt Metaphern und wiederholt Motive, und weil er auf 35-mm gedreht hat, sieht das alles irrsinnig schön aus. Sein Drama ist auch ein Essay über Verlust und Trauer, geprägt von knorrigem Trotz und Humor – ganz einfach die hohe Kunst.

Pascal Blum

Soupçon d’adultère et désir de vengeance hantent ce drame contemplatif, exalté par la beauté sombre de la nature islandaise.

Hélène Marzolf

Malgré une certaine rigidité formelle, le cinéaste islandais navigue prodigieusement entre les genres et fait coexister toute une palette de tonalités. L’art de Pálmason n’est jamais aussi pétillant et réjouissant que lorsqu’il scrute les enchaînements de désordres venant renverser la stabilité d’un monde bien en place.
