“A wry, idiosyncratic comedy that [is] never less than a joy to watch. Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir is something to behold as Halla, a mild-mannered, middle-aged choir mistress who seriously dabbles in ecoterrorism. A Tai Chi enthusiast, a fan of Gandhi and Mandela, and an excellent saboteur, she invokes ancestral law and messes with hydro towers in her quest to make her ruggedly beautiful land safe for future generations, which happen to include a small child from Ukraine she seeks to adopt as a single mother. Filmmaker Erlingsson has an eye for detail, a flair for the absurd, and a deft touch with social commentary and political satire. Heroine Halla gets help from a sister, and a farmer who calls his collie ‘Woman.’ Woman, as in man’s best friend—and mankind’s best hope.”—Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail
