An unfortunate disagreement between next-door neighbours goes violently out of control in Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson’s dark and wry drama. The movie simmers ostensibly around a long-running spat between two neighbours in the suburbs in Reykjavik, where one has a large tree that casts a shadow on the other’s home. But we learn there are stories behind the feud and conflicts within the characters. A uniformly excellent cast perfectly tread the line between comedy and drama, making the most of a note-perfect script.
