Description: This Icelandic tale, loosely based on the real-life experiences of director Fridrik Fridriksson tells the saga of a boyhood spent in Iceland in the 1960's. Tomas loves the movies and is highly influenced by them. His parents prefer he go to loftier shows such as King of Kings, but Tomas prefers the Roy Rogers' Saturday matinees. Much of his time is spent reenacting scenes from those Westerns. Tomas world is thrown into chaos after he is sent to a relative's farm for the summer and can no longer go to the movies. There he imagines the scenario for a genre thriller. The fantasy becomes reality as the boy must face a genuine tragedy.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
