Aro Recommended Cold Fever


Iceland / USA / Japan 1994, 86 minutes
Dir. Fridrik Thor Fridriksson
In Icelandic, Japanese, English with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy / Road Movie


Aroview: Stylish one-off depicts a Japanese businessman's pilgrimage to Iceland, to where his holidaying parents died.

Taking its cues from the cinema of Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismaki, with wry protagonist and glacial tempo, we get a neverending stream of Icelandic peculiarities set in a starkly beautiful, frozen landscape.
