Woman at War
with Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Jóhann Sigurðarson, Juan Camillo Roman Estrada. 101 mins + trailers.
From acclaimed Icelandic director Benedikt Erlingsson (Of Horses and Men) comes this fantastically off-the-wall story that winningly combines absurdist comedy with a tense thriller. Halla (Halldóra Geirharõsdóttir) seems to lead a quiet existence, but her conventional exterior hides another, secret self as a committed environmental activist. As she plans her boldest operation yet, she receives unexpected news – forcing her to choose between her crusade and the chance of fulfilling a more personal dream. Playful, stylish and confidently made, Woman at War depicts a fierce and focused heroine pondering whether to continue directing her substantial energies out into the world.
