Under the Tree

Under the Tree is a 2017 Icelandic the theater film directed by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigursson. It was screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. It has the escalating, claustrophobic structure of the darkest illogicality, but humor doesnt pile occurring in Under the Tree appropriately much as it bleeds out. In the course of Icelandic writer-director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdssons memorably choking third feature, savage black comedy passes re imperceptibly into stunned, brute tragedy considering a giggle turning in the throat and coming out as a choke. Charting an initially au fait achievement of across-the-fence attrition as well as bad neighbors in saintly-humored surroundings, Sigurdsson gradually takes petty bourgeois tensions to alien, gasp-worthy extremes; what the film occasionally lacks in human finesse, it makes taking place for in sheer anything-goes resolve. The bleakness of its blackness might not portend a major crossover hit, but upon the strength of both its universality and its singular Scandi irony, Under the Tree should take minister to on its branches into international arthouses.
