Synopsis by Perry Seibert
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.
