A childless couple in rural Iceland make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn. They soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature, in this dark and atmospheric folktale, the striking debut feature from director Valdimar Jóhannsson.


"I was relieved to see how shrewdly Lamb tightens the screws without getting cheap or going for the throat, even when the story darkens."
- Chicago Tribune
"Lamb is too vivid and original to forget."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"Lamb is visually striking and moody, a well-made curiosity that you'll ponder days after you see it and wonder what the hell it means and why it affected you so."
- San Jose Mercury News
