WOMAN AT WAR (Metacritic Reviews & Trailer)
September 20 & 21, 2019


Woman at WarWith a masterful melding of the serious, the comic, the ridiculous and the musical, Woman at War is joyful to experience though difficult to sum up. Halla is a fifty-year old independent woman, who behind the scenes of a quiet routine, leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. In her non-terrorist life, Halla is someone very different, a peace-loving choirmaster who has large pictures of Gandhi and Nelson Mandela on her living room walls and smiles at everyone she meets. One reviewer says that while this film is dealing with elemental matters, the director is having too much fun to get all solemn about it. Woman at War is a beautiful hoot. (in Icelandic) (101 minutes).
