Iceland/Ukraine 2019, 101 mins. Dir. Benedikt Erlingsson.
Starring Halldora Geirhardsdottir, David Thor Jonsson and Magnus Trygvason Eliasen
Halla is a mild-mannered Icelandic music teacher with a secret identity: she is also fearless environmental warrior ‘Mountain Woman’, whose mission is to disrupt the country’s aluminium industry before it destroys the local environment. With huge Chinese investment on the horizon, however, the government is determined to track down this unknown vigilante, and the net begins to tighten. Things get even more complicated when her application to adopt a longed-for orphan is approved, and Halla must square a personal dilemma with her political activism. This is a captivating comedy-thriller which treats its serious subject with a quirky and deft lightness of touch.
