Guðný Halldórsdóttir – Veðramót AKA The Quiet Storm (2007)

A handful of idealistic twenty-somethings discover love and trust isn’t always enough in this period drama from writer and director Gudny Halldorsdottir. It’s the early Seventies, and law student Selma wants to do more than simply defend people in court; she’s eager to make a difference in the lives of others, and when her boyfriend Bloffi joins the staff of Vedramot, a home for delinquent teenagers with emotional issues, she leaves school to work beside him. Selma, Bloffi and their friends believe that an open environment where the young inmates have the opportunity to discuss their feelings and the circumstances that led them into a life of crime will do more good than traditional disciplinary techniques. However, not all the youngsters at Vedramot respond to this laid-back approach, and Disa, a product of a severely abusive home, openly encourages the other teens to flout the few rules they’re asked to follow. In time, conflicts between the staff and the students escalate into violence, leading to tragedy and bloodshed. Vedramot (aka The Quiet Storm) was inspired in part by Halldorsdottir’s own experiences working at a home for underage offenders in the Seventies.
