Watch The Atmospheric Trailer For Lamb Starring Noomi Rapace

Ahead of it’s world premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Valdimar Jóhannsson‘s Lamb gets a Promo Trailer.

The promo was posted by European Film Sales who are given the film one last push before the premiere, hoping to pick up more sales. The film is part of the Un Certain Regard and stars Noomi Papace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) who runs a farm with her husband in rural Iceland.

They are also a childless couple and suddenly things changed when a ‘baby’ was found in their barn. Not all what it seems, is this drama actually an horror and that baby is not human?

When it comes to working in films with a different language from you, Rapace certainly shown her talents. The Swedish actress has proven she has a tongue for several languages including Icelandic. It seems when she was a girl she did live on the island with her father. This film is teasing plenty of atmosphere, We actually don’t know much about the film, what we do know there is an element of folktale that will make your mind wander!

A childless couple in rural Iceland make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn. They soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature, in this dark and atmospheric folktale, the striking debut feature from director Valdimar Jóhannsson.

Selected for Cannes Un Certain Regard 2021

The film also stars Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, and Hilmir Snær Guðnason.

We don’t have any details on who and when Lamb will be released in the UK and Ireland. A24 Films have bought the U.S rights however they haven’t announced a U.S release date yet. The film will get 26th August Icelandic release date.
