This is a cracking film, though the good people of the Icelandic tourist board may be holding their heads in their hands.

It's a striking, if slightly silly, curio from the writer-director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson: 85 minutes of Bergman-lite topped off with five minutes of Tarantino.

Opts for Grand Guignol over subtle nuance, but entertaining nonetheless.

Sigurðsson is no misanthrope and his humane message - that everyone is muddling along as best they can - makes all the feuding and bile easier to stomach.

Under The Tree is a macabre and darkly funny slice of Icelandic noir - a bit like Fargo done Reykjavik-style.

Imagine a Mike Leigh film with fangs, directed in a style of Nordic deadpan.
