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