Film synopsis

The man loves the woman and the woman loves the man but the man is in love with his most prized possession, the mare, and the mare is obsessed with the stallion.
In a remote valley in Iceland where neighbors follow each other closely, the couple’s first official visit is closely monitored. Spring is coming and with it, the dangerous force of nature.
This can not end well.
 
WINNER OF BEST DIRECTOR at San Sebastian Film Festival and Tokyo International Film Festival

Love and death become interlaced and with immense consequences for the whole community. We follow the fortune of people through the horses’ perception in Of Horses and Men.
 
Iceland’s submission to the 2014 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film
