    Reader comments on The Seagull's Laughter

    Subject: Feminine Mysticism
    Date: Jan 30, 2008
    Sender: Gerald DoempkePrevious

    Magnificent and captivating movie.
    Could have been set anywhere (a Norse Steel Magnolias?), but had an added excitement from its Iceland setting. In fact, that was probably the magic the inspired it, and added the added spark of mystery. I had read someone's comments regarding the mystical undertone to the movie and the references to Freyja joking she was the Fairy Queen and her dancing with the elves. It reminded me of a time when I lived in Iceland and passed the fishing village of Hafnarforder on the way to Reykjavik. It was noteworthy because of all the elf rock cairns you see in the area. I now rewatch the movie, seeing different elements, and that is the best recommendation for a movie - that it takes on a slightly different feel at each watching.
