Will the 30-year-old Hlynur ever move out of his mother’s apartment in Reykjavík? Social welfare keeps him passive but things change when his mother’s Spanish friend, Lola, arrives and stays through Xmas and New Year’s Eve. 101 Reykjavík has won numerous awards at festivals around the world. Special approaches and unconventional communication between the sexes play a big part in the success of the film.
