An Icelandic Comedy
24 February 1999 | by (Borgafjörður eystri, Iceland) – See all my reviews

A comedy about two guys (Þór og Danni) from the city that go to the country to work pretending to be used to the country life. Then soon it appears that they aren't as used to it as they say. It's an extremely funny film and is well worth seeing.
