Do you, Jon Jonsson,

take Thora to be your

lawful wedded wife?


Will you, with God`s help,

be faithful to her,

honor and respect her

through all that God may bring?.

Yeah, sure.

Do you, Thora Larusdottir,

take Jon to be

your lawful wedded...



- Yes

The rings are a token

of your love and devotion.

It`s the left hand.

I now pronounce you

husband and wife.

You may kiss the bride.


Excuse me,

I have to take this.

Jon! It`s Dad.


Your mother is completely lost.

- Where did you say we were?.

- Kerlingarskard.

Dad, hold on a second...

Can we proceed?.

- You may kiss the bride.

- Right.

Dad, l`ll call you back.

We`ve just gone

a little bit too far...

You have no idea where we are.

I`m in the church.

I have to kiss the bride.

You said Midsummer night.

That`s tomorrow.

It`s a rehearsal.

I`ll call back later.


Mom, stop it.

- I didn`t say a word!

- Just stop it.

Where were we?.

You may kiss the bride.


...and all that.

What did he say?.

He was in the church...



It`s not like he is doing it

for the first time.

On one hand we have

the persona of the doctor,

the honest man.

In his mind there are no `ifs` -

It is simply wrong

to betray your wife.

That`s the moral `absolutism`

of Kant.

Betrayal is wrong...

No matter what

the circumstances.

The other guy thinks

he`s doing what`s best,

what leads to the best consequences.

It`s possible.

The end justifies the means

is the author`s point then?.

We shouldn`t assume

we know the author`s point...

but we definitely

have two opposites.

The doctor and then

the protagonist, the landowner,

who betrays his wife

in hope of a better life.

A consequientialist, if you will...

The end justifies the means.

We could also define it

as graded absolutism.

Things aren`t right or wrong,

as the doctor says.

They are relatively wrong

or relatively right,

depending on the circumstances.

It is wrong to steal,

but worse to starve your child.

The landowner

intends to save his life

even if it means

he has to betray his wife.

To save a man`s life,

in this case his own,

is more important to him

than being faithful to his wife.

Does it have to be

so complicated?.

Isn`t love always justifiable?.

That`s an oversimplification...

I just think your explanation

is unnecessarily

long and complicated.

Maybe you are right,

perhaps it is...

Iong and unnecessary.

Do you need saving?.


No. I`m safe.

Are you sure?.

Sure of what?.

My love


Why don`t you answer?.

The phone was off.

What is it?.

Oh, God...

I had an accident.

An accident?.

I didn`t see him,

I was driving and--

Calm down, Anna.

Don`t start with that.

I am calm.

I was driving down--

I can`t hear you when you shout.

I am not shouting!

Just listen to me - I hit a swan!

- Hit what?.

- Or a goose or something!

A swan?. A bird?.

And are you all right?.

Yes, but...

Could I have a quick word?.

You`re all right, aren`t you?.

Yes, l`m fine.

All right, darling.

See you when I get home.

Bye, sweetheart.

Thank you, Reverend.

Well, say your goodbyes for now.


- You`ll make the house cozy for us?.

- Sure.

And you can`t see me

until tomorrow.

Makes it more fun.

It`ll be just like the first time.

- Tell him to come and see me.

- I will. Just take it easy.


Sisi wants you to stop by today.

We have to settle things

before the wedding.

I have to pick up

a friend from the ferry.

We`re just waiting

for that subsidy.

That`s great,

see you later today then.

Come in through the kitchen
