In a remote valley in Iceland, where neighbours follow each other closely and people have deeply intertwined relationships with their horses, a couple’s first official visit is keenly monitored. Spring is coming and, with it, the dangerous force of nature. This cannot end well.

MUBI's take

In a grand Scandinavian tradition, this highly acclaimed cinematic twist (Bresson’s Au Hasard Balthazar as a comedy?) is a deft balance of darkness and light, a series of humorous, fond, and critical vignettes. An auspicious debut, and Iceland’s submission for the Oscar® for Best Foreign Film.
