Finn and Alfred are summer employees of the Icelandic Road Administration in the 1980s, spending days painting yellow lines on a rural highway with only each other for company. Finn is older and seemingly wiser than skirt-chasing Alfred, his girlfriend’s brother, for whom sex is constantly on the brain. The two men barely tolerate each other at first, but ultimately share – during a comical, drunken night – their deepest questions and possible answers about life and love. Director Hafsteinn Sigurdsson uses the isolated countryside of northern Iceland to highlight the nuances of Finn and Alfred’s colourful dialogue and behaviour, their Sisyphean work mirroring the difficulties of human connection. See also Prince Avalanche, the US remake of this endearing comedy, screening from 29 November to 2 December.
