I’m still trying to process what I just watched
The story that “Lamb” tells is so bizarre that I imagine just coming up with it would warrant an involuntary admission to an inpatient psychiatric hospital. I, for one, definitely felt like I needed to give myself over to the authorities after watching this movie – not because I committed any crime, but instead to allow the detectives to piece the plot together for me. “Lamb” is either a surrealistic folktale that its audience is meant to take very literally, or a sort of metaphorical, symbolic tale that we are supposed to decipher through careful observation of the film’s characters. And truth be told, however you decide to view this film, it works.
Whether you want to watch this movie with the viewpoint that everything it is showing you is actually happening or with the perspective that there is something deeper beyond the surface level, “Lamb” does require a certain amount of effort from the viewer in order to be fully compelling – you’ll know within the first 60 seconds of the movie starting whether or not it’s your cup of tea. To give you an example of how polarizing this movie is, during my showing three teenage males walked out after about 20 minutes, and one girl was so bored and in a rush to exit the cinema that she actually fell down the stairs. That’s right, “Lamb” is single handedly responsible for what I imagine could have only been the breaking of one of her bones, because upon her tumble she started sniffling and crying like a newborn baby – at the least, she’s sure never to forget this movie experience! But by no means do you have to go on and break your own bones to find some entertainment value from this movie, as long as you have the patience to sit still and watch it.
If you don’t like slow movies, you won’t like this – it’s that simple. “Lamb” features long, drawn out scenes of (gorgeous) Icelandic scenery, minimal dialogue, and characters doing random things such as tending to their fields, helping sheep give birth, and dancing (what A24 film doesn’t have dancing at this point? It’s becoming their staple). Not until Ada is introduced does the movie start to slightly pick up some steam. And who is Ada? Well, you know from the trailer: Ada is the baby lamb that our two main characters start to take care of as if it were their own child.
“Lamb” markets itself as a horror film, but it is anything but. It can be considered a drama, but to be honest it isn’t very dramatic. Yes, there is some drama in it, as well as a few scenes of suspense, but as a whole, when you watch this movie, you’re watching a movie about a couple take care of a baby lamb – that’s the spoiler-free synopsis. Sure, there is more at play here than just that, but that’s basically the gist. And if that sounds entertaining to you, then you’ll probably like this movie. If that sounds boring to you, then you’ll want to avoid this film like the plague. There are some slight twists and turns that may manage to catch your attention, but most of them will be too little too late, especially for viewers who aren’t initially captivated by the hypnotic tone and snail-like pace.
Look, I don’t have much to say here. With its bonkers plot, stunning scenery, and excellent acting, I found myself mildly entertained throughout the film. And if you’re not excruciatingly bored while watching this movie, then I believe that you will also find something to enjoy. However, if slow burn films aren’t your thing, then by no means should you watch this. Does “Lamb” fit into the October, Halloween theme? Not at all, but if you want to watch something extremely different, then give this a go.
Where is Ada?
The first twenty minutes shows us the mundane life of raising sheep in remote northern Iceland. Things are boring until a sheep give birth to a strange lamb which the couple decide to raise as a child they name Ada. The bipedal lamb matures and things are still mundane with a touch of weird. The ending was unexpected, but when you ponder it over, it make sense.
This isn’t real horror. More like bad fantasy. The story crawled too much. Slow Burn would be polite. It was different.
