New York Times critics pick

“In A WHITE, WHITE DAY, a gripping psychological drama from the Icelandic writer-director Hlynur Pálmason, time doesn’t heal all wounds; it’s more likely to let them fester in silence.   The movie, about a rural widower who finds his grief tilting inexorably into rage, is a fascinating study in contrasts: It’s full of closely observed faces and majestically framed landscapes, and it lurches from tense revenge-thriller twists into haunting flights of abstraction.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“An eerily gripping study of grief – and impotence in its face – with the trappings of a revenge thriller.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times
