Of Horses and Men

Benedikt Erlingsson

The Icelandic-German co-production Of Horses and Men is a film about love. That would actually say it all, were it not for the many crazy entanglements between humans and animals and between the people in general. The feature film debut of renowned Icelandic actor and theater director Benedikt Erlingsson is set in a remote valley in Iceland, where neighbors watch each other as if intimacy were the most worthless minor issue in the world. The first official visit of a prospective couple is, therefore, strictly monitored - from a distance and with a corresponding number of binoculars. A bad omen for the young couple … Of _Horses and Men_ seduces through its fantastic imagery, bold, original and with a penchant for bizarre figures (both two-legged and four-legged beings) - a film about the horse in the people and the people in the horse. This year, not just one, but two co-productions of the Mainz-based producer Christoph Thoke (a.o. Tropical Malady) received an Oscar nomination in the category of best foreign language film. Besides _Of Horses and Men_, the comedy Television was shortlisted as well. _*In presence of the hessian minister for science and art Boris Rhein and the CEO of the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain Dr. Helmut Müller.*_
