Synopsis

After Atli is thrown out of his house by his wife Agnes, he returns home to his parents, Baldvin and Inga, who are embroiled in their own particular kind of crisis. As he pleads to his wife for forgiveness – despite to see his daughter again – his parents’ next-door neighbours, a younger couple named Konrad and Eybjorg, complain that their garden is in permanent shade because of Baldvin and Inga’s overgrown tree. Atli’s parents refuse to cut the tree down, however, resulting in events slowly escalating. After slashed tires and smashed gnomes, each couple accuses the other of underhand tactics and soon the whole episode spirals wildly out of control in pitch-black fashion in this dark Icelandic comedy.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
