Set against the stunning backdrop of an Icelandic fishing village, Baltasar Kormákur’s tragicomic The Sea (2002) chronicles the money-grubbing faults of a wealthy Scandinavian family. Patriarch Thordur (Gunnar Eyjólfsson) is central to the schemes of his greedy children. None of them can stand his overbearing ways, but they are determined to collect on the windfall that will accompany his death. With a nod to King Lear and other Shakespearean epics, Kormákur plots the machinations of his avaricious ensemble cast as they position themselves to plunder the family’s savings. Sexy María (Nína Dögg Filippusdóttir) might just have the upper hand by having the hottest bod. She certainly knows, at any rate, how to shag her competitors into submission.
