Comedy of sexual confusion, revolving around an Icelandic couch potato who has a New Year's Eve fling with his mother's lesbian lover ("I never cheated on my mother before"). That partner, a Spanish flamenco dancer, turns up pregnant at the same time as the potato's unwanted girlfriend. Tart, earthy, thick-skinned, if not exactly humorous; with a frigid, gritty image of remarkable tactility. The foreignness, rather than any seriousness, provides insulation from the youthiness. With Hilmir Snaer Gudnason, Victoria Abril, and Hanna Maria Karlsdottir; written and directed by Baltasar Kormakur.
