Before embarking on the making of her first feature, Ingolfsdottir helmed several shorts, including What We Fear (2022) and Neglect (2010).

Loveable revolves around 40-year-old Maria, a mother of four, who must come to terms with herself when her husband says that he wants a divorce. The creative team bills it as “an interpersonal film about a break-up, but also about a woman’s opportunity for self-knowledge and growth, and having to deal with unconscious and dysfunctional patterns in herself”.

The main cast includes Helga Guren (22 July), Oddgeir Thune (Blind Spot [+lire aussi :

) and Elisabeth Sand. Key creatives are DoP Øystein Mamen and editor Anton Robsahm, who cut the picture alongside Ingolfsdottir.
