Taste of Iceland
A childless couple in rural Iceland make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn and soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature.
A story both wonderful and strange
LAMB is a striking directorial debut from Valdimar Jóhannesson. This dark and atmospheric folktale, starring Noomi Rapace and Hilmir Snær Guðnason, follows the childless couple María and Ingvar at their farm in rural Iceland. Together, they make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn: a newborn, unlike anything they've seen before. After deciding to adopt the newborn, María and Ingvar face the consequences of defying the will of nature.
This masterful and terrifying debut feature from director Valdimar Jóhannsson excavates primal fears—of parenting, loss, and the vast and merciless wild—in a dark and unnatural folktale for the ages. LAMB was co-written by Icelandic poet, novelist, and lyricist, who also co-wrote the upcoming ' ', an epic Viking thriller directed by Robert Eggers, which features Björk as a witch.
LAMB won the Prize of Originality at Festival De Cannes in 2021 and has been described by critics as "Darkly imaginative and brought to life by a pair of striking central performances, Lamb shears expectations with its singularly wooly chills."
