A fabulous film. WHITE NIGHT WEDDNG Is Heartfelt, Funny And Truthful! --TwitchFilm

Product Description

2009 Academy Awards®
Best Foreign Language Film (Official Entry Iceland)

In 24 hours, forty-something professor Jon will be getting married to a student half his age. But before he can make it to the ceremony, he ll have to deal with a massive debt to his mother-in-law to-be, his extremely drunk best man, the logistics of a remote Icelandic island, an increasingly hostile reverend, and the guilt-ridden memory of his emotionally unstable first wife. Can love survive one final night under the midnight sun or is the road to happiness paved with blissful ignorance? Hilmir Snær Gudnason (101 REYKJAVÍK) stars in this internationally acclaimed comedy/drama from writer/director Baltasar Kormákur (JAR CITY) that The Calgary Herald calls a hilarious, darker version of Woody Allen or Alexander Payne. You won t see a better film this year than WHITE NIGHT WEDDING!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and pretty good movie April 5, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the first movie from Iceland I watched, and was quite impressed. Highly recommended. Not extravagant but really interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie despite being wrongly marketed as a comedy November 4, 2012
Format:DVD
White Night Wedding isn't a comedy; it is a love triangle drama, where some situations are presented as funny, although, maybe, you have to be from Iceland to find them so. However, this is a good movie if you aware that what you are about to watch is a drama film.

Jon is torn between his dying love for his deranged wife, Anna, and his younger, former student, Thora. For the sake of his wife's mental health, they move back from Reykjavík to Flatey Island, where a community of peculiar people live and make life for Jon interesting for us to watch yet irritating for Jon to live.

Both the photography and the acting in this film are top-notch. However, the soundtrack is a bit off-putting. For some reason, a repeating blues instrumental track plays in the background whenever the "funny" situations are presented, which, for me, was distracting from the main love triangle plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm... January 16, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had high expectations for this movie given that it was recommended to me by two other people I respect. But, I was bored by it. Funny, dramatic, in a weird mixture, but it just didn't arouse much interests or excitement for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not a comedy, despite the cover August 14, 2012
By Iguana
Format:DVD
Why one star? Because the cover makes it look like it's a comedy. And it isn't. It's a fairly depressing tragedy, with a couple comic moments.

It's actually a fairly good film, but I don't think the people marketing it had actually watched it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change of pace April 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A real departure from this director's last effort ("Jar City" - 5*) and almost as good. Who'd a thunk Iceland could produce such good films?
