Beautiful Beings (ENG SUBS)
Addi lives with his eccentric mother in Reykjavik, Iceland. After an incident with his classmate Balli who is being bullied, he decides to take care of him. Together with two of his comrades, the quartet explores their budding lives into adulthood. They don’t shy away from aggression and violence, but they also learn about mutual loyalty and affection. As their behavior continues to escalate, Addi looks for ways to bring him and his friends back to a safer path.
Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson creates a tender yet grim ode to growing up in 90’s Iceland, with all the uncertainties and experiments that come with it. The whole story is beautifully captured by Victoria’s cameraman Rams and The Innocents.
