.... and it started so well, promissing. The beautiful, raw opening shot of a plane landing in the mesmerizing icelandic landscape. But from then on, a film unfolded in front of me, I would describe as "completely unnecessary". Full of stereotypes (especially in Hamburg), slow and exaggerated acting and plot-less (ok, there was a plot, but rather a reason to change location). I sat through the movie for personal reasons (my connection to Hamburg), but was thoroughly dissappointed and regretted spending money on it. Public film funding should not invest in disposable work. Support the brave and off-beat instead to encourage development. Falcons is certainly a step backward...

The plot of 'Falcons' revolves around 'Simon', an American criminal, who on release from prison travels to a small town in Iceland with an intention to end his life of crime. While there he becomes a close to 'Dua', free spirited, charismatic and beautiful young woman, who he believes may be his illegitimate daughter. Dua believes in astrology, loves animals, is naive, optimistic and doesn't take much interest in material possessions; Simon however is the complete opposite. When Dua gets into trouble with the local police, Simon decides to help her escape. Dua's only possession of any value is her pet Icelandic Falcon, which just happens to be a protected species. As Simon discovers it is a rare and valuable bird, the pair go on the run to Germany to find a buyer.
Overall, the acting is excellent and the scenery, as with most Icelandic films, is beautiful, but what lets the film down is a poorly executed story, and by the end of the film you get the feeling that writer-director Fridrik Thor Fridriksson was running out of ideas. If you're a fan of Icelandic cinema 'Falcons' is worth a look, otherwise it's worth giving a miss.

I really enjoyed this film, unlike the other reviewer I found the acting to be to a high standard. I enjoyed the various paradoxes which the film played out between the innocent and the tainted especially between the two lead characters. I found it a very rewarding film to watch and enjoyed the fact that I was left with something to consider when it finished.
