QFT Player: A White, White Day
15 November 2020
Iceland’s finest actor Ingvar Sigurðsson gives a heart-breaking and Cannes award-winning performance as a widowed cop who becomes increasingly obsessed with his wife’s death. Available to rent on QFT Player.
Ingimundur (Sigurðsson) is recently bereaved. On compassionate leave from the police force, he keeps himself busy by searching through boxes of old photos and home videos. Doing so leads him to suspect that his late wife was having an affair with a local man. With his anger at boiling point and his police intuition in full flow, Ingimundur sets out across a rugged landscape to discover the truth in a quest that will inevitably endanger himself and his loved ones.
Writer-director Hlynur Palmason uses the foggy and expansive Icelandic landscape, a chilling score and brilliant performances to create an eerie and thrilling atmosphere on-screen.
