Treating its timely themes with a deceptively light touch, Woman at War is easy to enjoy in the moment, yet its impact lingers long after the closing credits roll.

The droll absurdity of Nordic cinema acquires an eco-terrorism edge in Woman at War, a movie filled with dualities and one singular performance.
Woman at War" exudes a puckish sense of humor even as it deals with dire matters.
The director's admiration and affection for Halla is clear, as are his activist sympathies, and they are put across with a lightness and a mild absurdity that make for a warmer experience than the material suggests.
It's a reflection of Erlingsson's confidence, both in his audience and his own filmmaking skills, that he leaves the final interpretation up to us.
An artful fable that examines what it really means to save the world, Benedikt Erlingsson's "Woman at War" is the rarest of things: A crowd-pleaser about climate change.
Whenever you start thinking that the movie is one thing or the other, Mr. Erlingsson switches tones blithely, keeping you wondering what the next development will be. The result isn't perfect, but it's joyously audacious.
There are wonderful twists and surprises along the way, none of which I will spoil here. Suffice it to say, Woman at War had me gripped and delighted all the way through.
It's tricky, given the current political climate, to glorify an eco-terrorist, but Geirharosdottir enables Erlingsson to pull it off with her ability to remain likable in the face of Halla's escalating criminal activity.
Like its well-meaning protagonist, Woman at War won't solve all the world's problems, but it's an original and compelling tale.
Quirky, yes, but this comedy/drama/thriller also has a lot of heart and considerable entertainment.
Stylish and offbeat eco-thriller with great lead performance.
This is a helluva smart yarn about a warrior goddess brought to earth, with plenty of Sturm und Drang and humour.
