Under the Tree (15)

Two families. One tree. A bloody mess. 

In a quiet Icelandic suburb, a bitter dispute erupts over a tree. For one side it is a beautiful garden feature; for the other it's getting in the way of a decent summer tan. What starts off as a typical spat between neighbours spirals violently out of control, fuelled by the hilarious pettiness stopping either side from backing down.

If you’re one for weird and wonderful Icelandic black comedies like Rams (or you've ever had an intense garden-based feud with a neighbour) Under the Tree is not to be missed.
