UNDER THE TREE

Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson · Iceland · 2017 · 89 mins · 14A · Icelandic with English subtitles
AwardsIMDbMetaCriticRotten Tomatoes 84%
It’s high summer in Iceland, but a chill between two sets of neighbours is heading from cool to glacial. An exhilaratingly sly dark comedy about ordinary suburbanite folk going from unglued to unhinged to ultimately undone. Atli (Steinpor Hroar Steinporsson) finds himself forced to move back home with his folks. There, he finds his parents engaged in a test of wills over a backyard tree that throws too much shade on their pretentious next-door neighbours. The result is an escalating campaign of accusations and reprisals that drags everyone in, right down to the family pets, and things get very nasty and hilarious indeed. Sigurdsson does a stellar job of demonstrating the thin veneer that exists between civility and savagery in a dark tale that is sure to amuse and unsettle. And the kicker ending? Sublime!
