I went to see this very intriguing icelandic movie ('Jar City' in English) today and it was actually a very good movie. The Direction, The cast, the acting, the story. The main actor Ingvar Eggert Sigurdsson was also present at the screening. He won the award for best actor in Iceland. This multi-layered murder mystery became the highest grossing film in Icelandic history, and was the country's Oscar nominee. During the Icelandic Edda Film Festival, this movie actually won best film, best actor, best music, best director, best supporting actor.
It's apparently inspired from the book of the same name by author Arnaldur Indridason. Very good thriller far from clichés.
