Jon is a middle-aged man who lives with his elderly mother somewhere on the edge of Iceland. It is obvious that his mother always knows how things should be. Therefore it is only natural that when the mother dies, the son fulfils all the instructions the mother has left for when she dies. Jon combs and dresses his mother’s dead body, puts her to sit on the back seat of his old car, takes the loyal dog Bresnef along and the drive to the other end of the country – to where his mother has told him to bury her – may begin. Accompanying the deceased on the last journey is naturally a sad emotion. But in this dark comedy, everything is funny. What makes this film special, however, is the author’s special sympathy and understanding and the actors’ love for their characters, which is definitely conveyed to the audience in the cinema, making it the brightest film experience of the year for many.
