Children of Nature (Icelandic: Börn náttúrunnar) is a 1991 Icelandic film directed by Friðrik Þór Friðriksson.[1] It was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar at the 64th Academy Awards, the only Icelandic film to have ever been nominated.[2]

Plot[edit]

Þorgeir, an old man living in the Icelandic countryside, has grown too old to continue running his farm, and is made to feel unwelcome in his daughter and son-in-law's urban dwelling. Dumped into a home for the elderly in Reykjavík, he meets an old girlfriend from his youth, and they elope to the wilds of Iceland to die together.
