synopsis

The man loves the woman and the woman loves the man but the man is in love with his most prized possession, the mare, and the mare is obsessed with the stallion.
In a remote valley in Iceland where neighbors follow each other closely, the couple’s first official visit is closely monitored. Spring is coming and with it, the dangerous force of nature.

This cannot end well.

"[Erlingsson] pushes ahead with efficient visuals, snappy transitions and a driving score split between cantering rhythms and choral hymns." - Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
