Critic Reviews of "Rams"Philadelphia InquirerMarch 18, 2016
Resonant and surprisingly affecting ...Boston GlobeMarch 10, 2016
In its attentive and hushed way, the movie is about collision: between stubborn farmers and the government veterinary board, between ancient ways and modern times, between two old, hardheaded brothers.Seattle TimesFebruary 18, 2016
Sigurjónsson's Gummi, with his quiet canniness and his fearful, conflicted feelings about his belligerent brother, is the best reason to watch "Rams."Globe and MailFebruary 12, 2016
There's lots of wisdom here, but in the Icelandic barrens, good cheer has sometimes gone missing. Yes, there's a price to pay for being stubborn.Toronto StarFebruary 12, 2016
A lovely film that will stay with you.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 11, 2016
If you are determined to enjoy it, Hakonarson will throw every challenge in your path.Film InquiryFebruary 18, 2017
Rams isn't the film that is going to definitively put Iceland on the world cinema map, but it is the boldest invitation yet about the distinctive tone of their cinema.Film Ireland MagazineJanuary 03, 2017
Hákonarson doesn't lessen the harshness of the characters or the landscape, but still manages to find beauty in the way they are.Financial TimesDecember 27, 2016
After grim comedy comes the threat of grim tragedy. The ending is a do-or-die confrontation with the elements, powerfully presented.Sunday Times (UK)December 18, 2016
It never becomes deep, but its tender view of its richly drawn characters makes it beguiling to the end.MovieMailDecember 13, 2016
It's a delight to encounter a film that quietly, gradually creeps up on you; which, without seeming to expand a huge amount of effort in so doing, puts a smile on your face.Brooklyn MagazineNovember 15, 2016
Gummi and Kiddi's interactions tend toward the comical, but the rock-steady widescreen cinematography by Sturla Brandth Grøvlen lends the proceedings a deadpan aura.
