Nordic Film Thursdays: KING’S ROAD

The Scandinavian House in cooperation with Evald Cinema and CinemArt within the Nordic Film Thursdays project presents the Icelandic movie

KING’S ROAD (Kóngavegur, Iceland, 2010, 93 min)

Director: Valdís Óskarsdóttir
Starring: Gísli Örn Garðarsson, Daniel Brühl,  Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Hanna María Karlsdóttir, Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson aj.


After many years spent abroad, Junior (Gísli Örn Garðarson) returns to his home country – Iceland, followed by his mysterious “friend” Rupert (Daniel Brühl). They are not really coming in order to travel around the island – it’s more their financial issues that direct their steps. These issues should be solved by Junior’s wealthy father Senior. But instead of a luxurious villa, this former millionaire dwells in a trailer in a caravan village in the middle of nowhere, where a lot of extraordinary people live: a peevish taxi driver (Ingvar E. Sigurðsson) who constantly gets tickets for speeding, a former Miss Iceland or Junior’s grandmother with her really easy-going pet – a stuffed seal. So that there’s definitely no shortage of bizarre situations, indeed.

The screening will be introduced by a short lecture about Daniel Brühl.

In Icelandic with Czech subtitles.

Admission: 110 CZK
