“Is there anything rarer than an intelligent feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humor as well as a satisfying sense of justice?   Look no further than WOMAN AT WAR, Benedikt Erlingsson’s gloriously Icelandic, near-perfect follow-up to “Of Horses and Men,” featuring an environmental activist modestly taking on the world, one electric pylon at a time.” – Jay Weissberg, Variety

“A wry, idiosyncratic comedy that communicates important topical messages while never being less than a joy to watch.” – Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail

“Beneath the playful surfaces – musical interludes, quirky neighbors, happy smiley eco-terrorists, Rube Goldbergian sabotage attempts – lie some uncomfortable truths about citizenship, family, and privilege.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

“Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite.” – Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

Language: Icelandic, Spanish, Ukrainian (English subtitles)
