Under The Tree: Icelandic dark comedy. A quarrel between two neighbouring families escalates. Car tires are slashed. A cat and a dog go missing. Insulting garden homes are left as a "present". The way this film moves from the mundane to the macabre in just 89 minutes is a virtual assault on your senses. There is a subplot about the son of one couple breaking up with his partner and even this is bizarre, especially a "house meeting" in their apartment building. Be warned: this is not for the faint hearted. 8/10.
