Under the Tree

£3.99 (Discount available for Curzon Cinema Members)
This dark suburban satire tells the story of a man who is accused of adultery by his ex-fiancée and forced to move in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his four-year-old daughter, he is gradually sucked into a bitter dispute between his parents and their neighbours regarding an old and beautiful tree that casts a shadow on the neighbours’ deck. As the dispute intensifies - property is damaged, pets mysteriously go missing, security cameras are being installed and there is a rumour that the neighbour was seen with a chainsaw. The cast is led by Steinthor Hroar Steinthorsson, Edda Björgvinsdóttir and Sigurdur Sigurjónsson ('Rams'). ★★★★ "Will leave you open-mouthed" - Demetrois Matheou, Evening Standard ★★★★ "Imagine a Mike Leigh film with fangs, directed in a style of Nordic deadpan" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★ "Fargo done Reykjavik-style" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★★ "The darkest screen comedy imaginable" - Tara Brady, The Irish Times
