COLD FEVER (Fridrik Thor Fridriksson, 1994)

A very 90s kind of road movie, with a young Japanese businessman reluctantly traveling across Iceland for a traditional mourning ritual, encountering local and foreign eccentrics (including Lili Taylor as one half of an obnoxious American couple), and not making too big a song and dance of his emotional journey. One of those films that I wish I had more to say about beyond kinda liking it, but since nobody’s paying me, I’m allowed to leave it at that.
