Two families. One tree. A bloody mess. This hilarious, deadpan dramatic comedy follows a man (Steinþór Hróar Steinþórsson) who is accused of adultery 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 dispute between his parents and their next door neighbors over an old and beautiful tree—one that is casting a large shadow over the neighbors’ sunroom in a country where sunlight is coveted. What starts as a petty squabble between suburban neighbors soon escalates, drawing in the family pets (one family has a cat, the other a dog), unexpectedly and violently building to boiling point and explosion. Directed and co-written by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson, whose debut feature Either Way was remade in the United States by David Gordon Green as Prince Avalanche, Under the Tree was Iceland’s Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 90th Academy Awards. Winner of 7 Edda Awards (Iceland’s equivalent of the Oscars), including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor. (Fully subtitled)
