Lamb

Lamb ★★½

The Cannes’ Prize of Originality-winning half-human half-lamb-born story, Lamb, manages to engage you during its first act quite well with the themes of motherhood and nurture amidst loss. Unfortunately, as it reveals its true self, it ends up feeling more like a farce rather than a prolific product. It seems like an idea that A24 would latch onto, yet this lacks a sense of structure compared to their other “eldritch” stories. Jóhannsson never fully settles on a specific topic; he seems to pick them right out of a hat. And when he tries to address one of the many themes, he does so in various wisecracks or unintentional funny moments.
