Critic Reviews for Under the Tree

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (55) | Rotten (10)

  • 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…
  • A remarkable writer-director gifted with razor-sharp wit and an uncanny grasp of human foibles, Sigurðsson is the best approximation to a 21st century Billy Wilder that contemporary cinema has to offer.

    August 14, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | 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.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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…
