Woman at War


Halla's (Halldóra Geirharõsdóttir) happy and upbeat exterior hides a secret double life, wherein she also operates as a committed environmental activist. Known in the media only by her alias “The Woman of the Mountain”, she is a Joan of Arc-esque figure, armed with an elaborate bow and arrow, dashing across the countryside to vanquish offenders. But as she begins to plan her boldest operation yet, and as the government attempts to discredit her, she receives unexpected news...

Playful, touching and funny, Woman at War is confidently and stylishly made, sound-tracked by Icelandic folk music as it follows its appealing, fierce and focused heroine as she ponders whether to continue directing her substantial energies out into the world.

"Alongside considerable frivolity, Woman at War packs a genuine emotional punch, while showing what some people are willing to sacrifice for the good of us all." ★★★★ The List
