Quotes & Reviews:
“…the cinematography is striking, sound and music are superb and the two leading actors — who carry much of the movie by themselves — both give telling performances. Iceland has produced a few compelling thrillers in recent years, and this has to be counted among the most atmospheric and intriguing.”
– Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter


“There are terrific Hitchcockian moments all the way through, amplified by Einar Tryggvason’s superb score…”
– Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall


“Set to a compelling score composed by Einar Sv. Tryggvason, the audio and visual experience alongside the passion between the two men truly made this film feel like a work of art.”
-Megan Casady, Nightmarish Conjurings
