Brass Band and a Bridge, A

Over the course of a year, we watch the bridge builder Haukur Karlsson and the musician Pál Pamphichler Pálsson at work, including the Eyjafjöll region on the south coast, Hvalfjörður and Skeiðarársandur, and Páll rehearsing the Reykjavík Brass Band for its anniversary concert, conducting the Icelandic Opera Orchestra in Der Fledermaus and having a work of his performed at a large open-air concert in Austria. The film suggests that all there certains themes common to all work, and that these men's occupations are not as different as they may seem to be at first glance.
