Eurovision just got that much closer to winning the Oscar it deserves [..] Husavik is a climactic hyper-ballad that has to establish the lead characters’ feelings for each other, celebrate the sleepy fishing village they may not have outgrown, honor the story’s general silliness, and hit you in the gut hard enough that you believe it might actually be worthy of winning Eurovision.
