The 39th Portland International Film Festival: RAMS

Funny, moving and stunningly shot, Rams was awarded the top prize of Un Certain Regard at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. In a secluded valley, brothers Gummi and Kiddi live side by side, tending to their sheep. Their ancestral stock is considered one of the country’s best. But although they share the land and a way of life, the two have not spoken to each other in over 40 years. Their world is upended, however, when the valley comes under threat from infection. While others abandon their land, Gummi and Kiddi don’t give up so easily, and each brother tries to stave off disaster in his own fashion. As the authorities close in, the brothers will need to come together to save the special breed passed down for generations—and themselves—from extinction. (93 min.)
