The Juniper Tree ★★★

Had this naturalistic fairytale been done in the original Icelandic tongue I guess it would have been even more believable and emotional to me as I found the accents a little out-of-place, but as a film this is a minimalistic and stark cold one about survival and tragic consequence. Had only that kid been more sympatetic and likeable. At least Björk is magnetic as always and is the film's heart and centerpiece.
