WOMAN AT WAR

WOMAN AT WAR

Benedikt Erlingsson · Iceland · 2018 · 101 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes
The Icelandic director Benedikt Erlingsson’s “Woman at War” is a wry, idiosyncratic comedy that communicates important topical messages while never being less than a joy to watch. Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir is something to behold as Halla, a mild-mannered, middle-aged choir mistress who seriously dabbles in ecoterrorism. A Tai Chi enthusiast, a fan of Gandhi and Mandela, and an excellent saboteur, she invokes ancestral law and messes with hydro towers in her quest to make her ruggedly beautiful land safe for future generations, which happen to include a small child from Ukraine she seeks to adopt as a single mother. Filmmaker Erlingsson has a flair for the absurd – a sousaphone-based trio pops up here and there – and a deft touch with social commentary and political satire. – Globe and Mail
“Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite.” Hollywood Reporter
“Is there anything rarer than an intelligent feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humor as well as a satisfying sense of justice?” Variety
Cast Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Jóhann Sigurðarson, Juan Camillo Roman Estrada
