A White, White Day (2019) aka Hvítur, hvítur dagur

Halló! For their penultimate trip this series, Rob and Ellie journey to the south-east of Iceland to find Ingvar Sigurðsson playing a very different kind of police officer character to Detective Erlendur. Writer-director Hlynur Pálmason's second feature film, A White, White Day, from 2019, depicts a man named Ingimundur trying to hold himself together after the death of his wife while also supporting his daughter and her family. But after finding some books and a photograph, he begins to spiral. This is a stark look at grief through a more arthouse lens than previously seen on Kvikmyndapod, but it is an astonishing film with brilliant performances and a unique style. Also starring Hilmir Snær Guðnason, Björn Ingi Hilmarsson, Elma Stefania Agustsdóttir, Sigurður Sigurjónsson, Laufey Elíasdóttir, Sara Dögg Ásgeirsdóttir and Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir.
