Viewing Notes

FF2017 Day 5/Movie 3 - Icelandic dark dramedy as neighbors nasty domestic dispute elevates over a shadow of a tree. Good film that feels right at home at FF (also screening at Chicago Int’l FF) with it’s black streak of spite and paranoia. Shows the lengths at which people will commit towards their anger and hatred of others.
