UNDER THE TREE follows a man who is accused of adultery and forced to move in with his parents.

What starts as a typical spat between suburban neighbors unexpectedly and violently reaches a boiling point, soon spiraling out of control.

  • This is a cracking film, though the good people of the Icelandic tourist board may be holding their heads in their hands.

    August 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a striking, if slightly silly, curio from the writer-director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson: 85 minutes of Bergman-lite topped off with five minutes of Tarantino.

  • Opts for Grand Guignol over subtle nuance, but entertaining nonetheless.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Sigurðsson is no misanthrope and his humane message - that everyone is muddling along as best they can - makes all the feuding and bile easier to stomach.

  • Under The Tree is a macabre and darkly funny slice of Icelandic noir - a bit like Fargo done Reykjavik-style.

    August 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Imagine a Mike Leigh film with fangs, directed in a style of Nordic deadpan.
