Director Grímur Hákonarson returns to his native Iceland with another humanist farmland fable. Bitterly funny and deeply affecting, THE COUNTY plays out a timely political allegory against a jaw-dropping natural landscape, aided by a brainy, tenacious anti-heroine and Hákonarson’s dry Nordic humor.
“THE COUNTY blends elements of heartfelt tragedy with absurdist comedy, conjuring a humanist portrait of life in which community and loneliness coexist in a landscape of contradictions.” – Mark Kermode, Observer (UK)
“If THE COUNTY were just a beautifully judged account of one woman drawing a line in the snow, that much would be welcome. But there is more to chew on here.”– Danny Leigh, Financial Times
