“You may imagine Iceland to be a slate-gray purgatory; Jar City will outdo your most depressing fantasies.” - Time Out New York
A murder mystery with a story that's as chilly as its ice-cold setting. The plot follows Erlendur, a detective on the case of a seemingly mundane murder. When his investigations reveal a brooding history of buried crimes and police corruption, the floorboards start creaking with grisly secrets. Everything in Jar City - from the haunting choral score to the bizarre culinary behaviours of the stoic detective - emanates a thrilling sense of doom.
“An absorbingly revelatory experience, and one of the most mesmerising movies of the year.” - New York Observer
