Critic Reviews for Out Stealing Horses (Ut og Stjæle Hester)

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (6)

There's some appreciable serenity and a lot of personal grief on display in Out Stealing Horses, but it's only visible in fits and starts.

August 7, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

What Mr. Moland is after, in tackling an "unfilmable" novel, is evidenced in the visual tone, emotional content and Mr. Skarsgård's mutely eloquent performance.

August 6, 2020 | Full Review…

An ambitious film that examines memory and consciousness through the perspective of an older man who's determined to escape from memory and to constrict his lived experience.

August 6, 2020 | Full Review…

A hugely accomplished meditation on life, guilt and responsibility.

February 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Effectively plays lush visual storytelling against its characters' desolate interiors.

A sensual but disconnected Stellan Skarsgård vehicle about memory and loss.
