Our take

This winner of the Un Certain Regard competition in Cannes is a perfect example of Nordic deadpan, highlighted by the stark and vast landscapes of rural Iceland. A tale of brotherly rivalry that combines dry humor, intense emotions and crescendo intrigue, supported by two remarkable performances.
