Börn náttúrunnar (1991) AKA Children of Nature



Old Thorgeir must leave his home far off in the Icelandic ‘countryside’ and move into a home for senior citizens in Reykjavik. There he meets an old friend from his childhood, Stella. Thorgeir soon becomes unhappy living there and together with Stella he steals a jeep. Together they leave the city for Stella’s old home in northwestern Iceland.

    Censorship of naked woman at the 1:05 mark. Wonder what that’s about? Was this recorded from a TV screening, maybe?

    Anyway, great addition to the rarefilmm archive.

      Hi Vidor.
      The source is a DVD released by a company called Sena, now most likely OOP, there are not many prints available out there for this movie and I’d say most likely they are all the same (also censored).

          Did I watch that two minutes just to see the naked chick uncensored? Yes, yes I did.

    Any chance of an updated download link? I’m Icelandic and the DVD print is out of stock everywhere, I can’t find this film to show it to my son 🙂
