Highlights not only the rage and ferocity of women's activism, but also its playfulness, generosity and tenderness. It's a delightful film: beautifully shot, full of joyous symbolism, and with a deft central performance from Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir.

What Woman at War succeeds in delivering is an organic, stunning film, thanks to Bergsteinn Björgúlfsson's beautiful cinematography and Erlingsson's considerate direction.

This wildly improbable yet utterly engrossing tale packed with political connotations is very much recommended.

For Benedikt Erlingsson more is more, and so he tries paths that are sometimes detours, but he mainly seduces with effective and at times convincing and vital stories. [Full Review in Spanish]

Anchored by Geirharðsdóttir's lovely, winning performance, "Woman at War" beautifully balances urgency and absurdity, which is not an easy tone to sustain.

What can one person do to combat the forces of climate change and globalized industry? Quite a bit, as Benedikt Erlingsson would have us believe in Woman at War.

Full of heart and soul, Woman. at War is a triumphant and exciting film, and unlike anything you've seen before.

Make a note to seek out this beguiling gem that manages to be a gripping eco quasi-thriller as well as a quirky and sensitive character portrait.

This gimmick weakens the movie's emotional grip, but the director's yarn-spinning is likeable in its own way: it has warmth, humour and nimbleness.

Woman at War is a thoroughly original film and presents a wonderfully quirky antidote to the mass of Hollywood blockbusters.

Woman at War raises a lot of questions and allows the audience to think about them.
May 5, 2019
A subversive romp that splendidly overturns action-movie cliches, putting a DIY twist on Mission: Impossible riffs, presenting its life-or-death struggles in thrillingly offbeat fashion.

If Meryl Streep were playing Halla, everyone would know about it. So they should definitely get to know Halldóra Geirharosdóttir.

Ultimately this is a gripping and intelligent film which tackles the biggest problem of our time with flair.

No Icelandic director has started their career with such thematic acuity and stylistic assurance as Benedikt Erlingsson... with this timely satire that touches upon parochial and global issues with rare wit, intelligence and nuance.
May 3, 2019
A huge showcase for Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, who brings grit, determination, and quiet charisma to every scene. An engaging curiosity and an absolute joy.

There can be no doubt that Halla is one of the year's strongest, most inspirational heroes.
