RAMS ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by Grimur Hakonar­son. Star­ring Sig­ur­dur Sig­ur­jon­s­son, Theodor Julius­son, Char­lotte Bov­ing

Two es­tranged brothers tend neigh­bour­ing sheep farms in an in­hos­pitable cor­ner of Ice­land. Here is a most un­usual comic drama that plays some very clever games with tone. For much of its du­ra­tion, Rams (win­ner of Un Cer­tain Re­gard at Cannes) deals in the sort of dry quirk we have come to ex­pect from Nordic cinema. As events progress, how­ever, the pic­ture im­per­cep­ti­bly soft­ens into some­thing much more poignant. Club, QFT, Belfast; IFI/Light House, Dublin, 93 min
