Icelandic Novel Yosoy Turned into Movie

Icelandic film production company Pegasus recently signed an agreement with Forlagid publishing on obtaining the movie rights to the award-winning novel Yosoy (2005) by Gudrún Eva Mínervudóttir.

Gudrún Eva Mínevrudóttir.

The novel features an unusual circus in an old wool factory by Álafoss waterfall in Mosfellsbaer, outside Reykjavík. Critics say it is a “complex story which borders on the grotesque,” as described in a press release from Forlagid.

Yosoy was recently released in Italy by Scritturapura publishing and a Danish version is underway. Mínervudóttir’s short story collection While He Watches You, You Are Virgin Mary was recently released in France.
