    Beschreibung "The domestic and international success of Baltasar Kormákur’s crime thriller Mýrin/
    Jar City (2006) is indicative of important changes in both the production and reception
    of Icelandic films. Prior to its release the few Icelandic films that had been
    distributed internationally, including Kormákur’s own 101 Reykjavík (2000), had
    catered explicitly to foreign audiences by adhering to the norms of the European
    art film. By contrast, Jar City is a locally produced film, shot in Icelandic, which
    uses none of Icelandic cinema’s customary narrative strategies to appeal to a foreign
    audience. However, belonging to the well-known crime-film genre, Jar City is easily
    apprehended by any audience despite its local flavour and distinctly Icelandic crime.
    Notably, Jar City also exemplifies a wave of Icelandic crime films and television
    series, constituting a fundamental shift from the model of the European art film to
    one of generic Hollywood production." (Information des Anbieters)
