Broken glass brings luck? Not when the bottles contained a premium red wine! The fact that a whole crate of bottles gets smashed as they arrive at their weekend cottage is a bad omen for the six best mates on a fishing trip. The whole fishing-for-salmon trip is actually only a pretext to get away from the wives and to drink and eat in excess – as far as their cooking skills allow it. But everything goes terribly wrong that weekend. The authority of the leader, Valur, comes under question, and the filet mignon turns out to be horsemeat ... The directors delightfully dismantle the wet and cheerful weekend rituals men use to reaffirm their wobbly sense of masculinity. Role model for the film’s abysmal party was the Icelandic singer-songwriter Bubbi Morthens, whose refrain "I regret nothing" serves as the musical leitmotif for the film.
