Seagull's Laughter

Movie: Seagull's Laughter, a dark comedy from Iceland. Yes, that's My Thing. Set in the early 50's. Freya returns from America slimmer, recently widowed with 7 trunks of spiffy clothes, make up and a sassy attitude, all of which and more makes her 11 year old cousin Wednesday Addams or Agga (seemingly pronounced closer to Acka?) suspicious. I was amazed to learn in the far too short making of featurette that Wednesday had never acted before. One scene with her and friend (Thursday?) made me lol. Also got a kick out of Freya and date taking a walk through the fish drying racks. What could be more romantic? And the grandmother trying to console one of the gals with boyfriend troubles with "some flatcakes and dried fish." Best line: probably the over-awed spoken "You had a fridge?!!" Reviews calling this movie "delightful" are right. Find it if you can.

    yay!! Glad you liked it, figured you would. Can't wait to see it. Is it something I could watch without too much embarassment with someone of the opposite sex?? You know who

    I think there would be some embarassment. Only a couple scenes, dimly lit but not dim enough. Nothing's hidden, that's for sure. Your call.

    "You had a fridge?!?!" was priceless!! There was another quote almost near the end that made me LOL as well. I wish I could remember what it was. Oh well
