About A White, White Day
Following his wife’s tragic death in a car accident, off-duty police chief Ingimundur struggles to cope with his grief two years later, focused on renovating a new home in his remote Icelandic town while alienated from everyone besides his young granddaughter. But when an accidental discovery leads him to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, Ingimundur’s detective instincts click back into gear, beginning an investigation that grows increasingly obsessive within their small community. As the extent of his wife’s betrayal grows more apparent, Ingimundur’s descent into rage and grief may endanger both himself and his loved ones.
Iceland’s selection for the 2020 Academy Awards and winner of the NDR Film Prize at the Nordic Film Days in Lübeck, A White, White Day is an emotionally complex exploration of the ravages of loss set across the hypnotic landscape of Iceland. 109 min. In Icelandic with English subtitles. Directed by Hlynur Pálmason (Iceland, 2019)
