GODLAND (12A) | Denmark Iceland 2023| 143 mins Danish Icelandic with English subtitles | Director: Hlynur Pálmason. Cast: Elliott Crossest Hove, Ingvar Sigurdsson, Vic Carmen Sonne. 


Hlynur Pálmason’s extraordinary third feature finds a Danish priest battling both locals and a forbidding landscape in 19th-century Iceland. The struggle between the strictures of religion and our own brute animal nature plays out in this stunning psychological epic, where Danish priest Lucas makes the perilous trek to Iceland’s southeastern coast with the intention of establishing a church. There he finds his resolve tested as he confronts the harsh terrain, temptations of the flesh, and the reality of being an intruder in an unforgiving land.
