A small buddy film with a small budget and two actors not known to most of us -- a road trip in Iceland of all places. I enjoyed it because I've thought for a long time that it would be very interesting to visit Iceland and drive around its so-called Golden Circle, see the rugged landscape, geysers waterfalls, lonely farm houses. Reykivik doesn't interest me much -- but then I've had cities up the gazoo and I like countryside.
The two retired men are in their later 60s it seems, they are former brothers-in-law married to sisters (until one got divorced and one died--the sisters, I mean). Not a lot happens but the men reveal habits, attitudes and inner life in subtle ways which is very rare in movies. Of course it's an indy film and not likely to be seen many places, which is too bad. We older people very rarely get to see our contemporaries treated so insightfully .
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
