      Critics Consensus

      Under the Tree leads viewers into decidedly bleak territory, but it's leavened by sly intelligence and a surprising sense of humor.

      Demetrios Matheou London Evening Standard This is a cracking film, though the good people of the Icelandic tourist board may be holding their heads in their hands. Rated: 4/5 Aug 20, 2018 Full Review Tara Brady Irish Times A remarkable writer-director gifted with razor-sharp wit and an uncanny grasp of human foibles, Sigurðsson is the best approximation to a 21st century Billy Wilder that contemporary cinema has to offer. Rated: 5/5 Aug 14, 2018 Full Review Ed Potton Times (UK) It's a striking, if slightly silly, curio from the writer-director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson: 85 minutes of Bergman-lite topped off with five minutes of Tarantino. Rated: 3/5 Aug 10, 2018 Full Review Dan Scully Cinema76 At a time where catharsis increasingly takes precedent over progress, Under the Tree has become essential. Mar 20, 2020 Full Review John Tones Espinof The movie's humor is cooked at low temperature, discreetly, with small explosions of cruelty. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 12, 2019 Full Review Naila Scargill Trebuchet A deliciously dark satire that examines the fragile nature of civility in a suburban setting, where it can take very little to provoke savagery and the collapse of a delicate social order.

      Wolfgang G Under the Tree ist eine düstere Schwarze Komödie von Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson… Weil der Baum von Inga und Baldvin einen Schatten auf das Grundstück der betuchten Nachbarn wirft, entsteht ein heftiger Streit zwischen dem Ehepaar und ihren Nachbarn… Streitende Nachbarn, wer kennt das nicht, aber dieser Streit eskaliert… Eine schwarze Komödie mit giftigem Humor aus Island… Die Charaktere sind gut ausgearbeitet und die Schauspieler sind überzeugend… Gesamthandlung der Inszenierung solide und glaubwürdig… Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Dramat o walniętej babie i sąsiedzkiej spinie. Zbędny wątek żony młodego. 2/3 filmu rozwleczone i nudne. Ciekawsza końcówka z mocniejszym wydźwiękiem Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review chris k If you're into a bit of wry - deeply cruel - humour, you're absolutely going to love this. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review clare k While advertised as a noir comedy, there was little to amuse, with a bleak story focusing on various broken relationships which left an overarching sense of sadness only partly redeemed by an amusing residents meeting and a few comedic escalations in the last few minutes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member THERE IS NO REASON TO WATCH THIS FILM. I’m very open-minded in my tastes, and this was so bad it’s maddening. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/03/20 Full Review les n Entertaining until the final 2 minutes with the silly Hollywood ending. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
