Psychological drama set in Ethiopian countryside
Set in gorgeous green highlands of Ethiopia, the drama tells a story about loss, childhood, social isolation and family. A realistic in its depiction, but emotional in the delivery of its story, Lamb goes deep into its main character's position and psychology. The film is rich both in its visual setting and music and beautiful to look at.
