Of Horses and Men(Hross í oss)
An Icelandic comedy-drama about a rural group of people, their relationships with each other - and with their horses. This was Iceland's selection for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.

Of Horses and Men is an Icelandic film that straddles between a heart-warming rom-com and an outrageously offbeat black comedy set in a rural valley where everybody knows everything about everyone. The many tidbits about each character and their horses created a jumbled storyline, so unless you love horses and Iceland (like me who happily bathed in a giant tourism advertisement) it may not be for you. Despite this, the natural beauty of Iceland, which was beautifully shot, can carry any film.
