Movie Reviews

“The less you know about Lamb going in, the better (…) a disturbing experience but also a highly original take on the anxieties of being a parent” David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter 

“‘Lamb’ is certainly audacious and eerie enough to establish a competent genre filmmaker with vision to spare. Any details beyond that and the movie’s entire appeal collapses under the outré nature of its central gimmick.” Eric Kohn: IndieWire 

“While ‘Lamb’ may not fully satisfy on a narrative level, it does succeed as an experience. Rapace is the precise actor to lead an oddball movie like this, and the emotional beats resonate (…) Rating: ??? (out of 5)” Meagan Navarro: Bloody Disgusting 

Our Opinion

Fascinating, Don’t miss it.
