Under The Tree

Director: Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson



89 mins

When Baldwin and Inga’s next-door neighbours complain that a tree in their garden casts a shadow over their sundeck, what starts off as a typical neighbourly dispute unexpectedly and violently spirals out of control. Acute social drama and black comedy mix in this freewheeling picture of suburban warfare where awkward observational humour is never far from hand. Icelandic director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson succeeds in bringing a wry sensibility to the lives of two families and a human touch to otherwise unlikeable characters.
