All Critics (42) | Top Critics (6)

Riveting and quietly funny from scene to scene. It has this quiet sense of control... It's such a talent behind the lens that you become drawn into this film.

It's full of closely observed faces and majestically framed landscapes, and it lurches from tense revenge-thriller twists into haunting flights of abstraction.

It sometimes feels like Palmason is being a bit self-indulgent with his slow pace, but Ingvar Sigurdsson keeps the film grounded, and ends it with such a devastating, powerful final shot that it alone erases most criticisms.

April 17, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

An eerily gripping study of grief - and impotence in its face - with the trappings of a revenge thriller.

April 16, 2020 | Full Review…

I'm convinced that "A White, White Day" is the work of one of the most important voices of this emerging generation, arriving at a stage where we have yet to learn his language.

April 5, 2020 | Full Review…

What's striking about A White, White Day is the way that Pálmason juxtaposes symbolic abstraction like that with acute psychological detail.
