Movie Review: Jitters
I never grow tired of watching movies about how difficult adolescence is. Since I rarely watch Icelandic films, and have never had the opportunity to use words like Eyjafjallajökull in a blog, I just wanted to insert this here.
The movie is about Gabriel, a Icelandish teenager who is trying to figure out his adolescent identity. Things get a little complicated when, during a short study abroad in England, he kisses another Icelandish boy. He spends the rest of the movie trying to figure out his identity among his friends with this other Icelandish boy going through his own identity crisis.
I didn't really leave the film thinking anything had been resolved or we got to see character development so if you like these tormented gay adolescent films or are curious about representations of Icelandish teenage life, this is worth watching.
