WOMAN AT WAR (12A) 

Iceland/France/Ukraine 2019.  101 minutes.  In Icelandic, Spanish, English and Ukrainian with English subtitles. 

Directed by Benedikt Erlingsson.  Starring: Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Johann Siguroarson, Juan Camillo and Roman Estrada.  

A genre-defying Icelandic drama about an independent woman who leads a double life.  Ostensibly a choir mistress and pillar of the community, Halla goes undercover as ‘Mountain Woman’ in her crusade to protect the environment she loves.  When she is offered the chance to adopt a child, her perspective on life has to change.  A thoughtful comedy with an idiosyncratic but irresistible heroine, and breathtaking scenery and action sequencences.
