‘An intelligent feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humor as well as a satisfying sense of justice.’
A one-woman battle seems unstoppable – until life itself intrudes.
Self-reliant Halla leads a secret double life. To most in her village she is the upstanding leader of the local choir. But few know she is also the mysterious ‘Mountain Woman’, fighting for her green beliefs by disrupting Iceland’s heavy industry. After years of battling Halla has the chance to retire with her cherished dream to adopt a child. Can she give up her cause? This witty and warm-hearted, music-filled award-winner boasts dry Scandi humour and a great lead performance.
