Heartstone (2016) aka Hjartasteinn

Halló! And so another journey through the cinema of Iceland ends. For this final episode of series three, Rob and Ellie discuss the beautiful 'Heartstone' from 2016. Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson's debut feature is a coming-of-age drama set in the remote east of the country near the fishing village of Seyðisfjörður. Best friends Þór and Kristján negotiate their teenage emotions and sexual urges as one sets his sights on local girl Beta and the other on his best mate... Sadly we end with a film that does not star Ingvar Sigurðsson, but the teen actors are all phenomenal (led by Baldur Einarsson and Blær Hinriksson) and some fantastic familiar faces complete the adult cast; Nína Dögg Filippusdóttir, Søren Malling and Sveinn Ólafur Gunnarsson. Rob and Ellie will return...but in the meantime join us on social media and keep your eyes on your podcast feeds!
