Category Title Date Time
Film "LAND HO!" 2014-08-27 19:00:00


Directors: Martha Stephens & Aaron Katz  

Iceland/USA, 2014, 95 minutes


You’re never too old to soak in a hot spring, get high on good weed, or give a marvelous screen performance — or so goes the charming logic of this gently elegiac road comedy about two aging buddies vacationing in Iceland. A bawdy, bittersweet ode to friendship’s lasting joys and life’s inevitable regrets, the film showcases pitch-perfect turns from Paul Eenhoorn and Earl Lynn Nelson.

Mitch (Nelson), a gregarious, American loudmouth, tells Colin (Eenhoorn), a softer-spoken Australian, that he’s planned an impromptu trip to Iceland for the two of them.

Before long the two men land in Reykjavik, where Mitch has an effortlessly pleasurable agenda in store: stay in nice hotels, eat at the finest restaurants, and possibly smoke some premiere local pot before moving on to the scenic countryside, with its hot springs and hiking. (The superb cinematography includes staggeringly beautiful outdoor vistas.)

That a comedy starring two actors of a certain age will touch on its characters’ encroaching sense of mortality is more or less a given; it’s considerably less assured that it will cover this territory as gracefully as “Land Ho!” does. The film’s pleasures as eye-candy travelogue are delivered without apology; certainly the Icelandic Tourist Board can expect a small uptick in business. But what gives the story its moment-to-moment buoyancy is the pleasure of watching two actors working brilliantly in tandem.  –Variety
