In a movie that feeds on the fury of women, Inga, is by far the scariest. A homemaker of late middle-age and barely bottled savagery, she dominates this pitch-black Icelandic farce. The immediate focus of Inga’s ire is her neighbor’s bodaciously athletic second wife, whose suntan is being thwarted by the branches of Inga’s beautiful old tree and who wants them removed. Funny and thoughtful, darkly comic and submerged in irony, events unfold with the inevitability of a slow-motion car wreck. Maintaining an unrelentingly gleeful grip on the film’s tone, director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson skillfully whips absurdist comedy and chilling tragedy into a froth of surging hostilities. 2018 Edda Awards (Iceland), winner: Best Film, Director, Actress, and Actor; 2017 Denver International Film Festival, winner: Best Film.
