Dovetail

Dovetail is short film by Magnús Leifsson and is based on the poem ‘New day in Eyjafjörður’ by Halldór Laxness Halldórsson. Dovetail follows Aron, a man in his forties, who has become trapped in a life that no longer properly fits him. In search of serenity, he imitates male stereotypes and dives into all the clichés of the material
world. However, underneath all the success and the perfect appearance, lies something tragic and unexpected. Through an exploration of the meaningless void filled by consumption, this short film is a lyrical presentation of beauty, grief and
sorrow.
