In 1974, a young Icelandic girl met a grim fate at the hands of a murderer -- and the crime was never solved. So begins celebrated director Baltasar Kormákur's procedural thriller Jar City (or Mýrin), adapted from Icelandic writer Arnaldur Indridason's 2000 best-seller, Tainted Blood. In the present day, the jaded and exhausted detective Erlendur (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) begins to investigate a link between that notorious unsolved crime and the homicide of a local thug, Holberg (Thorsteinn Gunnarsson). Erlendur also struggles in his private life with an overwhelming problem: the drug addiction of his own pregnant daughter, Eva Lind (Agusta Eva Erlendsdottir). Meanwhile, Örn (Atli Rafn Sigurdarson), an employee at a DNA-mapping lab, reels from the death of his own daughter, who suffered from a brain tumor. In time, the two men's lives will intersect in a myriad of ways that neither can even begin to foresee -- and the motivation for Holberg's original crime will become resoundingly clear. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Some New Trailer For Mýrin (Jar City)
New Review For Movie Mýrin (Jar City)A satisfying, altogether distinctive piece of filmmaking.
Trevor Johnston-Time Out
Tremendously acted and shot with memorable confidence, Jar City deserves a much wider release than it's apparently going to get.
Terrifically acted, expertly shot and painstakingly paced, Jar City investigates deeper, darker themes. And Erlendur is a reminder that homicide detectives don't save lives so much as exhume the meanings of violence.
Lisa Kennedy-Denver Post
Director Baltasar Kormakur interweaves taciturn Scandinavian humor and morbid violence for a unique combination of flavors.
Colin Covert-Minneapolis Star Tribune
The story, based on a best-selling novel, has familiar overtones; but Kormakur overcomes them with stylish direction.
V.A. Musetto-New York Post
The picture of Iceland that emerges in Baltasar Kormákur's Jar City is vivid and powerful but not something the country's tourist board would be likely to endorse.
A.O. Scott-New York Times
Unnerving and emotional, this police thriller has an unnerving breadth and depth, as a murder case opens a decades-old inquiry that brings all kinds of dark creepiness with it. It's like an Icelandic twist on Seven.
Rich Cline-Shadows on the Wall
Kormákur, who made the highly original 101 Reykjavik, is clearly saying something pessimistic about his homeland and, as a film-maker, has the means to do so to some effect.
Derek Malcolm-This is London
The burden of this Icelandic procedural thriller will put a chill in your bones, if the lugubrious, wind-whipped coastal setting hasn't done already.
I'll admit that I struggled to keep up with some of the more intricate twists and turns, but things come together for a shocking and memorable finale.
-Daily Mirror [UK]
Refusing to spoonfeed its audience, this is a dark, convoluted thriller, tightly scripted and richly atmospheric.
Philip Kemp-Total Film
Bleak surroundings and grim humour create a suitably sombre mood, but in the wake of juicy police procedurals like Dennis Lehane adaptations Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone, this is disappointingly straightforward stuff.
Elliott Noble-Sky Movies
The disinterring of corpses makes this film almost too ghoulish for its own good, but Iceland's top director Baltasar Kormákur wraps it up in his distinctive frostbitten style.
Tim Robey-Daily Telegraph
It's an intriguing puzzle that held me gripped until the very end.
Peter Bradshaw-Guardian [UK]
It's a terrific piece of direction from Kormákur. Everything, from the look of the film, to the brilliantly unsettling use of food as a recurring motif, is judged perfectly.
Wendy Ide-Times [UK]
In short, this is a superbly made, thoroughly engaging thriller that exerts a powerful emotional grip and is well worth seeking out. Recommended
A chilling murder mystery which should do wonders for Iceland's film industry.
Rosamund Witcher-Empire Magazine
A cold case in a cold place - Iceland's chilly legacy comes under investigation in this tragic noir.

Joseph Proimakis-Movies for the Masses
Jar City is an absorbing mystery connecting different generations and set in the desolate landscapes of Iceland.
Ed Scheid-Boxoffice Magazine
