AroView: Another distinctive beauty from Iceland starring Noomi Rapace (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) and Hilmir Snaer Gudnason as a childless, sheep-farming couple living on an isolated farm whose routine lives are altered when the latest newborn of their flock takes on a strange significance in their lives.
The slow-burn drama grows more uncanny and intriguing as it progresses, with the arrival of a capricious relative adding further tension and dimension to the story.
“Takes on the ominous, warning air of an old fable, the kind of pre-Grimm fairy tale meant to threaten the gullible with punishment for transgressing against the natural order of things. And in that respect, it’s a mighty debut, one worthy to see what else Jóhannsson has to offer.” ~Clint Worthington, Consequence
“A wonderfully strange film about parenthood.” ~Siddhant Adlakha, IGN
