We are thrilled to add yet another strong genre film to our slate in the shape of Icelandic horror/thriller, I REMEMBER YOU directed by Oskar Thór Axelsson and based on the bestseller by icelandic crime writer Yrsa Sigurdardottir.

I REMEMBER YOU is Oskar Thór Axelsson second feature film, his debut feature, crime thriller BLACK´S GAME (2013) was a huge international success which received praise both from critics and in the festival circuit. 

The film stars Thor Kristjansson (REYKJAVIK WHALE WATCHING MASSACRE, 2009; BLACK´S GAME, 2012; DRACULA UNTOLD, 2014), Ãgústa Eva Erlendsdóttir (CITY STATE, 2011; BRAVE MEN´S BLOOD, 2014) and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson (BLACK'S GAME, 2012; NOAH, 2014; THE LAST KNGDOM, 2015; GAME OF THRONES, 2016), among others.

“After having worked with Oskar Thór Axelsson´s debut feature Black´s Game, we look forward to once again be working with him and ZikZak Filmworks on his 2nd feature film. We have great expectations for I REMEMBER YOU and we are certain it will to do well both sales and festival wise”, says Susan Wendt, Head of Sales at TrustNordisk.

An older lady hangs herself inside a church in the remote Westfjords of Iceland. Via her suicide letter the new psychiatrist in town finds out that she was obsessed with the disappearance of his 8-year-old son, who vanished without a trace three years earlier. Across the bay to the north in an abandoned village, three city dwellers are restoring a house, strange things start happening and they realize the house is haunted. The two stories slowly intervene and it turns out that a child named Bernodus who vanished under mysterious circumstances some 60 years earlier is the connecting link.

I REMEMBER YOU is produced by Joni Sighvatsson, Thor Sigurjonsson, Skuli Malmquist and Chris Briggs for Zik Zak Filmworks in co-production with Ape & Björn Norway (Ruben Thirkildsen) and Maze Pictures in Germany. With Support from The Icelandic Film Centre and The Norwegian Film Institute.
