Cine Stills: Nói

I just watched Dagur Kári's film Nói (also called Nói Albínói). Shot predominantly in the winter landscape of Iceland, Nói tells the story of a complex and often bleak adolescence. Beautifully photographed and wonderfully acted, this subtly tragic film distills the searching desire for a different, perhaps better life.

You can find great interviews with both Tómas Lemarquis (the actor who portrays Nói) and director Dagur Kári here.

Still from Nói, 2003. (dir. Dagur Kári, cine. Rasmus Videbæk)
