Country Wedding Details


An inauspicious beginning to the day belies the potential disaster that lies ahead when a young bride and groom exchange their wedding vows in a scenic country ceremony in director Valdis Óskarsdóttir's comic tale of ruptured nuptials. The day may have only just begun, though beautiful bride Ingibjorg is already running late - a fact that doesn't sit well with her detail-oriented mother. Already stressed at the thought of seeing her ex-husband, the mother does her best to focus on her current beau, a considerably younger businessman who's latest deal isn't going quite as smoothly as he hoped it would. Meanwhile, as exasperated groom Bardi attempts to shepherd everyone onto a fleet of waiting busses, he notices that his best man is nowhere to be found. And of course every wedding has to have a few uninvited guests, the unanticipated arrivals at this particular ceremony including Ingibjorg's best friend Lara, her date, and her bird-brained grandmother to boot. Offsetting the gregariousness of Ingibjorg's long-lost cousin Brynhildur and his new male lover is the tempestuous priest (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) who seems more interested in downing drinks and watching football on television than ensuring that the ceremony goes as planned. Indeed it will be a miracle if this day passes without a major catastrophe, though the way things are going the wedding would still be a success if there were only one or two disasters. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
