Rams

Drama


 

Two brothers in Iceland who don't speak to each other are united in their efforts to save their flocks from being destroyed for a suspected disease.

"Rams" can be viewed as a complex, understated drama in an interesting setting that leaves the viewer to connect threads that are not overly explained. Conversely you may find yourself nodding off after counting sheep while the story plods on. There's no denying the beauty of the desolate landscape and the quality of the cinematography, but this movie will be most appreciated by those with a well-developed sense of the bizarre. Baa or bah?
