"A story of feuding neighbours with the emphasis on the neigh, 'Of Horses and Men' is a filly's-eye view of human folly from Icelandic writer/director Benedikt Erlingsson that's both hysterically funny and oddly moving" - Emma Simmonds, Little White Lies.

A huge success at festivals round the world, this comedy drama takes us into a small community of horse breeders in a vast valley where all human life revolves around their horses and where the horses are happier than the humans.


open_quote Hugely enjoyable tale set in the wilds of Iceland, as romance between humans is kindled by a bond with horses close_quote Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

open_quote If you want to see the year's most original, comedic and shocking film all rolled into one, look no further than this feature from Iceland. close_quote Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
