Iceland / Denmark / 2017 / 89 minutes / DCP / Color

Shade from a front-yard tree brings simmering tensions between two neighboring families in an Icelandic suburb to the boiling point. Infuriated with the retired couple next door who ignore their repeated requests to trim the tree, an amateur marksman and his young wife take their own action. Charting an initially familiar acrossthe- fence battle, Sigurðsson gradually develops petty domestic tensions into dark gloom. When grudges branch out, everyone suffers. Iceland’s entry for the Oscar’s Best Foreign Language Film. Screening with Wren Boys (11min).
