Hilarious, unsettling, and thought-provoking

Atli is pushed out of his home by wife Agnes after she discovers him watching a sex tape that features him. He tries desperately to talk to her and get time with their daughter Asa at her kindergarten, but his behavior turns stalker-ish. Atli has crashed at his parents' place: Baldvin and Inga have commenced a fight with their neighbors over a tree in their yard that the neighbors, Konrad and trim young second wife Eybjorg, complain throws too much shade on their deck.

All the characters misread situations, let their anger push them to escalate in vengeful responses, and often give one another good advice which nobody follows. It might be misleading to call "Under the Tree" a dark comedy, because although it is often hilarious and even approaches over-the-top farce at times, the plot raises multiple serious issues its fairly believable yet inexorable way, from aging and mental health, to grief and the fatal consequences of failing to speak up when one should.

Coolly but beautifully shot, and fiercely acted, especially the unsavory roles portrayed by Steinþórsson as Atli and Björgvinsdóttir as his fierce and cruel mother Inga, this is a startling story that does not take any easy turns.
