Proof that bad neighbours are a universal nightmare comes from this dark Icelandic satire from director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson, who depicts a suburban world spiralling into violence over the pettiest of grievances.

Under The Tree begins with a man (Steinþór Hróar Steinþórsson) accused of adultery by his ex-fiancée and forced to move in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his four-year-old daughter, he is gradually sucked into a bitter dispute between his parents and their neighbours regarding an old tree that casts a shadow on the neighbours’ deck.  As the dispute intensifies, property is damaged, pets go missing and there is a persistent rumour that one neighbour was seen with a chainsaw…

Spiked with moments of dark comedy, this perfectly formed film shows how the smallest of problems can easily balloon into a catastrophe. ‘Why are we acting this way?’ asks one character as things continue to wildly escalate. Because that’s what humans do, answers Under The Tree.
