After the success of 2014's 'Of Horses and Men' we bring you another Icelandic film - 'Rams' - a story of sheep and men.

Two men specifically - Kiddi and Gummi - two brothers who run sheep farms next door to each other...but they haven't spoken for 40 years until now, when circumstances force them to speak at last.

This sweet little film "morphs from gentle near-absurdist comedy to something close to tragedy...a simply but skillfully told tale of the hardships of isolated rural life in Iceland even today" -Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter


open_quote Rams is a gorgeous, tender and unexpectedly moving film about the most unlikely of subjects close_quote The Times
