A teenage Björk  leads this dreamy, meditative and melancholic feature. A feminist slant upon the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale which follows two sisters (Margit & Katla) wandering the Icelandic wilderness after their mother is burned as a witch. To ensure their safety, Katla marries a widowed man living with his son. Yet as the son grows ever more resentful at the presence of the sisters, tensions rise before things take a turn for the macabre. An impassioned turn from Björk is just one of many aspects to recommend in this lost gem, a Bergman-esque journey into the past. Thanks to Arbelso Films
