Of Horses and Men (Hross í oss)

Against a breathtaking seaside landscape, a cast of hot-blooded characters struggle to connect with nature and each other in this darkly comic collection of vignettes, set in a provincial Icelandic village. Among them, a pair of wistful human lovers spark their tentative courtship into action; a determined alcoholic gets his last ride at sea from a surprising companion; and an adventurous tourist sets off for a leisurely ride on horseback that spirals into a quest for survival. The lines between species blur seamlessly throughout these tales, reflecting love, death and the quirks of human and beast alike. The film captures the passions and idiosyncrasies of a close-knit community and the primal desires hidden within all of us.
