Summary:
 
In a remote Icelandic farming valley, two brothers - a hard-drinking Icelandic farmer (Theodór Júlíusson) and his estranged brother (Sigurður Sigurjónsson) - who haven't spoken in 40 years have to come together in order to save what's dearest to them - their sheep. Blackly comic and very rewarding.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"Strangely involving; it's a movie that sneaks up on you, right up to the bursting-dam emotion of its extraordinary closing scenes."  (Jason Bailey - Flavorwire)
