A WHITE, WHITE DAY tells the story of the widower and retired policeman Ingimundur who becomes convinced that his wife was having an affair before her death in a mysterious accident. Upon investigating the matter further, his suspicion morphs into an obsession and after a while he sees no other option than to find the culprit and exact his revenge. Enigmatic, arresting and quietly intense, WINTER BROTHERS director Hlynur Pálmason’s sophomore feature is an idiosyncratic tale of a man driven to extremes by his own self-destructive impulses.
