Krilli prepares the lobster soup. His brother Alli sits with the old fishermen, the last boxer on the island and the translator of Don Quixote into Icelandic. Every day they find solutions to the great problems of the world.
The soup is so delicious that it attracts a high number of crowded tourist buses. The popularity of the soup exceeds all expectations and captures the interest of ambitious investors. They want to buy the place, expand it and hang a big whale skeleton on the wall. A delicious comedy with sweet, spicy and melancholy ingredients, about the human soul and community life, that turns into an x-ray of the consumerist decline of the Western world.
Faces of those who come to the café. Marked by time. By Life. By work. A fishermen’s place. Wonderful to see how the camera catches them and the stories that come up.— Tue Steen Müller · Filmkommentaren.dk
Lobster Soup tells a very particular and original story, but at the same time it is very representative of what is happening nowadays in any place in the world that, believing itself isolated from what is happening outside its small boundaries, is equally exposed to massification and commodification.— Cine Arte Magazine
