In a remote Icelandic town, an off-duty police chief begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife, who died in a tragic accident two years earlier. Gradually his obsession for finding out the truth accumulates and inevitably begins to endanger himself and his loved ones, in a story of grief, revenge and unconditional love.
“The Icelandic director Hlynur Palmason, in his second feature-length film, shows an acute sensitivity to the potential relations between environment and cinematic pace. He exercises that quality in ingenious and galvanic ways in A White, White Day, an eerily gripping study of grief – and impotence in it its face – with the trappings of a revenge thriller.” — Glen Kenny, New York Times
“The Oscars should have made room for the intense and elemental A White, White Day.” — Mike D'Angelo, A.V. Club
“I’m convinced that A White, White Day is the work of one of the most important voices of this emerging generation.” — Peter Debruge, Variety
