Critic Reviews for A White, White Day (Hvítur, hvítur dagur)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

Palmason boldly risks audience disenfranchisement by pushing his disturbing story to unexpected lengths dramatically and stylistically, thereby winning a creative wrestling match with a potentially intransigent narrative.

A fascinating character, splendidly portrayed...

February 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Palmason's film is as much about the way men damage themselves by internalising their weaknesses, as it is about learning to cope when your perception of a deceased loved one has been turned on its head.

February 5, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Writer/Director Hylnur Palmason... makes stylish choices in his film's rhythms and imagery, both to add meditative chills, and artfully suggest passages of time where nothing much changes.

A relatable and at times shocking depiction of grief, and a unique film, A White, White Day definitely deserves to be seen widely.

There's a great deal to absorb in A White, White Day. It's quiet, it's mournful but not without brief moments of levity and hope.
