    Kari combines Kaurismaki's deadpan minimalism and Truffaut's sensitivity toward adolescent yearning with a hefty dose of gallows humor, and tops it all off with an apocalyptic ending.

    Given the white-on-white color scheme, I didn't expect so many shades of feeling.

    Lemarquis, as Noi, has a stoic and silent tenderness to him, and Hansdottir's Iris is the picture of pensive sluggishness. But then all that cold, cold snow slows you down, both inside and out, until the only thing moving is your heart.
  4. Like a young director with serious aims, there is an earnest tone here that makes Noi Albinoi a success.
  5. A playfully quirky and, ultimately, unexpectedly affecting portrait of a 17-year-old slacker.
  6. 70
    A lightly comic slacker drama that takes the desperation of teenage tedium seriously.
  7. 30
    Kari may eventually go far, but for now he's one of the less interesting inhabitants of international art cinema's disaffected-youth ghetto.

    At once saddening and amusing, Nói Albinói is a stunning study into life on the outside.

    An exceptionally unque story about adolescence into a maturing adult that is both unexpected and strangely remarkable however dark or bleek.

It's a real foreign treat and the best movie to come out of Iceland, well, ever! Expand
