Valdimar Jóhannsson / IS, SE, PL, 2021 / 106 min.

After a number of mainstream, English-language films, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace returned to the country she grew up in, Iceland, for this atmospheric folk horror Lamb. Her character claims a newborn lamb for herself and mother nature takes its grim revenge.

poster Lamb (Valdimar Jóhannsson, IS 2021)
The landscape inspires awe: bare mountains under a leaden grey sky. But that isn’t why Maria and Ingvar, who run a sheep farm in the furthest reaches of Iceland, seldom speak. A tragic recent event has almost literally struck them dumb. Then a miracle happens. During a winter storm something invisible enters the stalls. Sometime later a lamb is born that Maria (an intense Noomi Rapace) claims for herself.
