Angels of the Universe

At first we see him with his family, childhood friends and the girl (Halldóra Geirhardsdóttir) that he loves, and then we follow him into the psychiatric hospital. There we meet his colorful companions Óli Beatle (Baltasar Kormákur), who believes he has written all the Beatles' songs and sent them to the group as telepathic messages; the sophisticated and erudite Viktor (Björn Jörundur), who sometimes suddenly turns into Hitler; and Peter (Hilmir Snær Gudnason), Paul's room-mate, who has freaked out on acid and is under the impression he wrote a doctorate about Schiller at a Chinese university.
