Smáfuglar (Two Birds)
Directed by Rúnar Rúnarsson, 2008
This disturbing short film has been causing controversy wherever it has been shown. Definitely NSFW, this sad coming-of-age story has been used as part of the humanities curriculum in Icelandic schools. It is almost too close to reality to bear. The whole film is shown in the YouTube imbed above. If you do decide to view it set aside some time to watch it, uninterrupted, with some additional time to recover from its emotional impact.
It devastated me.
