Hlynur Palmason's "A White, White Day" ("Hvitur, Hvitur Dagur") is a successful hybrid of Nordic noir and art house film conventions.Somehow it was not acknowledged to be the selection's best film, but its powerful confluence of writing and acting, scoring and cinematography, comedy and rage won it the Prix Fondation Louis Roederer de la Revelation.Ingimundur and Salka's relationship stands at the middle of the film's exploration of child-rearing and family relations generally.The cop's foil in the film is his younger brother Trausti (Bjorn Ingi Hilmarsson) who smiles as easily as Ingimundur scowls. After a fogbound opening sequence (much of the best noir begins with the "crime" that propels the plot), the camera settles into a fixed-frame shot of a house in a field.There are a number of sequences like this in the film, where lyrical camera work inserts itself amid more conventional sequences of dialogue and plot complication.Hlynur Palmason's "Hvitur, Hvitur Dagur" ("A White, White Day") will be projected at 8 p.m., Thursday, July 25 at Metropolis Cinema-Sofil with French subtitles.
