Lamb ★★★★

In the first place this is really quite an odd film. At times it's funny and disturbing at the same time. It's in many ways a mystery, as it doesn't quite explain most of it throughout and instead is focussing on themes like acceptance and grief. Themes which are given enough emotional resonance to make you care about the characters. It's slow, yet fascinating and its conclusion is quite remarkable, which I'd say goes for the film as a whole, also. It's truly a slow-burn and might prove patience testing for some. Yet, its sense of realism within an unrealistic story, its sinister underlying atmosphere, the excellent acting and its in ambiguity shrouded storytelling make for a fascinating watch full of memorable imagery and layers, untill its haunting finale, which brings the mythology of this eerie folktale full circle in dark, twisted and painful ways.
