Agust Gudmundsson's Mavahlatur (The Seagull's Laughter) is a comedy/drama about a woman who comes to an Icelandic town. Freja (Margret Vilhjalmsdottir) arrives in the town claiming that her husband has passed away. She moves in with some extended family members, including her eleven year-old cousin Agga (Ugla Egilsdottir). Freyja rekindles a romance with the financially secure Bjorm (Heino Ferch), and manipulates him into a relationship. Bjorn's mother turns out to be more than Freyja could handle. The Seagull's Laughter competed at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

Mine, Too by JPielaszczyk June 24, 2005 - 10:46 AM PDT

The main character gives a great performancejust slightly but hilariously over the topof A Woman Using Her Wiles. Keep your eyes on her eyes (guys: if you can). Excellent too is the young girl/woman tring to understand how this stuff works. Lots of social interactions between mostly women with varying degress of relatedness.

A fine chick flick for guys, in fact.

I seem to remember 1950s American songs comprising most of the soundtrack.
