  • Summary: Óttar Thor is a champion soccer star, handsome and arrogant, who after winning a game casually tells a journalist he's gay. Imagine the surprise to his wife, a former Miss Iceland; his teenage son, already sullen and troubled; and his father, Thor's macho coach.
    A breezy and feisty
    dramatic comedy directed by Róbert I. Douglas, this is a story about a man who, much to the chagrin of his family, exchanges one sort of domesticity for another. After choosing a same-sex partner, he is kicked off the championship team, in which players are presumably straight. But once a player, always a player, and Óttar is offered a spot on a team in a basement soccer league that gay sportsmen from all over Iceland soon insist on joining. The ensemble cast is pitch-perfect, as is the tone in this lively account of the surprising accommodations people are capable of making. (Regent Releasing)

    A non-pandering crowd-pleaser whose character quirks and small stabs at poignancy feel refreshingly earned.
  2. Has thoughtful and funny characters, something that should give this droll drama appeal beyond a niche gay audience.

    Very low budget, amateur acting, a story that's been done several times, and much better, in other European films recently - a big disappointment for me. Expand
