    A simple little documentary on the life of Bjarni..an 83yr old shopkeeper, who has been tending the til/pumps in his little village for 60 yrs...and how times have changed!

    This was a delightful and charming little documentary. It follows a soulful and wise shopkeeper who (and whose general store in a remote village in Iceland) records the good ol' days - days when neighbourly love, generosity, religion, and integrity define a man.
    As usual, the ICCT (Icelandic Canadian Club of Toronto) hosted a rare gem of a movie in a comfortable space.
    Thank you for organizing!
