What to know

critics consensus

Well-crafted and resoundingly original, Of Horses and Men is as intelligent, inscrutable, and breathtakingly lovely as its titular equines. Read critic reviews

  • Strikingly good-looking if somewhat narratively uneven.

  • Flabbergasting images and a delightfully dry sense of humor make Of Horses and Men a debut worthy of celebration.

    March 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • [Erlingsson] pushes ahead with efficient visuals, snappy transitions and a driving score split between cantering rhythms and choral hymns.

    March 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Of Horses and Men is the rare honest film about horses, one as frank about their tubelike erections as it is caught up in the beauty of gaits and forelocks and that profusion of lashes over those moistly delicate eyes.

    March 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Of Horses and Men is the best Icelandic noir equine comedy I have ever seen. OK, it's also the only one, but I urge you to seek out this unexpected movie.

    September 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The tone veers from quirky observation to bleak contemplation, with a streak of dry cruelty - particularly when viewed through the reflective eyes of the horses upon which Erlingsson repeatedly focuses.
