Woman at War (12a)

Director Benedikt Erlingsson. Adventure/Comedy/Drama

This intelligent feel-good film tackles urgent global issues with wry humour and a playful, genre-bending wit. Independent, feisty 40-something Halla is not just the life and soul of the local choir but also leads a double life as an undercover environmental activist. As "The Woman of the Mountain," Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war of industrial sabotage to protect the pristine beauty of Iceland’s highlands. Erlingsson’s follow-up to the eccentric comedy Of Horses and Men is a hugely enjoyable call to arms that delivers laughs hand-in-hand with an urgent environmental and human message.

Starring Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Jóhann Sigurðarson, Juan Camillo Roman Estrada

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Most popular film of the season

Terrific! Some audience were seeing it for the second time because they thought it so good.

Surprisingly engaging quirky Icelandic film (with sub-titles). A tale of a female eco-warrior and her battle against big business.
