Finally watched all of the DVD’s of the Naeturvaktin series, the Icelandic comedy which also lead to Dagvaktin and Fangavaktin, ending with the film Bjarnfredarson. An amazing journey. What began as a curious comedy of isolation and entrapment in a late night Shell petrol station, with interludes of bleak moments, hilarious dialogue and deeply flawed characters, concludes with a bittersweet tale of redemption. A tour de force.
