Related Film Recommendations:
  • Rams (Grímur Hákonarson, 2015)

Another example of an Icelandic film that explores the relationship between humans and their animals. In this case, with sheep. The film won Un Certain Regard section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

  • Au Hasard Balthazar (Robert Bresson, 1966)

A portrait of a mule named Balthazar, this masterpiece of French cinema is great example of a film where an animal is not only a mute witness to human cruelty, but arguably in a biblical sense lends itself in sacrifice.

  • The Last Autumn (Yrsa Roca Fannberg, 2019)

Another beautifully cinematic example of an Icelandic film, in this case a documentary that records the tending of livestock in a nearly inhospitable, yet stunning Icelandic landscape.
