Two brothers, Gummi and Kiddi, live next door to each other but loathe one another. Their devotion is to their flocks. An outbreak of scabies that leads to the sheep being slaughtered is catastrophic for both – but also a chance for reconciliation. Director Hákonarson has an eye both for the forbidding beauty of the landscapes and for comic detail. With their beards and jumpers, the brothers look like their livestock. The best ovine film since Shaun the Sheep (The Independent).
