Lamb

November 05

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

A slow-burn contemporary folk horror that beds a ludicrous central twist so deep in damp Icelandic austerity you can almost believe it.

Lamb | Official Trailer HD | A24


In this fascinating and disquieting folktale a childless couple discover a mysterious newborn on their Icelandic farm. They take this creature as their own and the unexpected prospect of family life brings them much joy...for a time. Mother Nature, however, will not be denied her due. What felt like an unusual metaphor for how parenting taps into an inherent need to nurture suddenly swerves into Grimms' fairy-tale territory. The result is the sweetest, most touching waking nightmare you've ever experienced. D: Valdimar Jóhannsson, Iceland, subtitled, 2021

"No matter how pure your intentions nor how real your pain, these ancient myths all teach us, debts always come due, and the chilling denouement of Jóhannsson's dark, deliberate debut suggests that is what Lamb is: a modern-day take on some ancient, pre-Disneyfication fairy tale." —Variety
