Lamb ★★★

It’s not what I expected at all. Sure, it had some creepy moments here and there but it turns out to be an adorable story about meditation of grief and motherhood until it’s final moments which I actually liked because it made sense. I just couldn’t help myself but laugh at the first couple scenes of Ada (the half-human/half-lamb) walking around with a sweater, it’s hard not to. Noomi Rapace gives a calm & quiet performance that helps suit Johannsson's pace that he’s put. There’s some good shots in there. The slow-burn pace, storytelling & premise will surely put a lot of people off but despite not what I was expecting it to be, Valdimar Jóhannsson’s solid directional debut is creative, weird & good-looking. I just wish it was it was creepier and scarier than what we were given but that’s not to say I didn’t like it, I thought it was decent.
