Through 56 independent scenes, Echo draws a portrait, both biting and tender, of modern day Iceland during the often turbulent but also exciting time of the Christmas holidays.
Rúnarsson’s film often deal with the question of distance. It resurfaces in his latest film, a collection of vignettes depicting peculiar destinies that touch upon the universals of our humanity. Whether close or distant, these characters struggle with their solitude, their fears, their generosity, their present and their past. A contemporary panorama by turns ironic and caustic, Echo allows each character to question their place in the society they live in.
