Under the Tree (15)

Director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson. Comedy/Drama


A sly dark comedy about ordinary folk going from unglued to unhinged to ultimately undone. When Baldwin and Inga's neighbours complain that a tree in their backyard casts a shadow over their sundeck, what starts off as a typical suburban spat unexpectedly and violently spirals out of control. With its dry, deadpan brand of humour, this biting, bleak but hilarious study of bad behaviour blends a razor-sharp wit with an uncanny grasp of human foibles.

Starring Steinþór Hróar Steinþórsson, Edda Björgvinsdóttir, Sigurður Sigurjónsson
