Oxen: In desperation brought on by near-starvation, Helge Roos kills his master's ox and feeds it to his wife and baby daughter. No-one suspects anything until the meat is finished and Helge tries to sell the hide at a local market. He is spotted by the local vicar and, wracked with guilt, confesses. The vicar assures him that if he gives himself up, he'll be treated leniently, but Helge's sentence is far harsher than anyone predicted...

Masterfully acted, and directed "Oxen" is a superb story of desperation, love, and the human will to survive. With an engrossing plot, and brilliant performances this is a definite must see foreign language masterpiece. I thoroughly enjoyed this picture. It had a nice look and an excellent message. I give it 5/5.

This is an excellent, thought provoking film about desperate acts in desperate times and the ramifications of those actions and the guilt and shame they bring. Stellan Skarsgard is excellent as usual. If you don't like subtitles, then you might have to bite the bullet and brave through this one, It's well worth it. I have to add that some of the best films I've ever seen were foreign & subtitled! 4.5/5
