    Yet another offbeat quirky offering from Iceland where the horse and human share equal billing in a film which reflects our fascination and reliance on our equine cousins. Writer and director Benedikt Erlingsson uses the beautiful set of landscapes as a vast singular backdrop to contrast the quiet dignified affection of horses with the irrational, messy and inconclusive nature of human attraction. This is the sort of picture that defines a new generation of original filmmakers from Iceland.

    The Guardian gave it ★★★★ and called it a

    “Hugely enjoyable tale set in the wilds of Iceland, as romance between humans is kindled by a bond with horses”
