This very dry, very Icelandic comedy is a country romance about the human streak in the horse and the horse in the human. Love and death become interlaced with immense consequences. Through several interlinked short episodes we follow the inhabitants of an isolated hamlet.

Director Erlingsson says: “This is not a straightforward story. I hope that the English title, Of Horses and Men, gives the right point of view. The word that is missing, ‘stories’, is the key. And of course it must be said that here in the north, women are also men. It is important to state that no horses were hurt in the making of this film. The entire cast and crew are horse owners and horse lovers… I must admit, however, that there were some human actors that were traumatized during the shooting of the film, but I happen to know that they were still alive when this was written.”
