ABOUT THE FILM

Maria (Noomi Rapace) and Ingvar (Hilmir Snær Guðnason) are a couple who live in a remote farm in Iceland with their herd of sheep – their life is one of routine and calm. However, when one day they find a mysterious newborn on the farm and decide to raise it as their own, they will pay the price for defying the will of nature.

Director Valdimar Jóhannsson’s directorial debut is one of the most assured and insidious tales of terror in cinema that sneaks up on your when you least expect it and proof that A24 have done it again. Utilizing Iceland’s cinematic nature to best effect, LAMB is one of those rare occasions where the less you know, the more pleasure you’ll get out of discovering its intricate nuances and nuances. With a stellar and game cast giving it their best, LAMB quietly creeps under your skin and leaves a mark so deep, it’ll take you weeks to even try to forget it. And that’s before we even begin to discuss the incredible score. – Evrim Ersoy
