Woman at War Movie Review: Climate change can be seriously funny
By Andrea Thompson
The Icelandic film Woman at War practically opens like a call to arms, complete with drums and a woman indeed heroically taking aim with a bow and arrow. If the fact that she’s dressed in modern clothing and shooting at power lines adds a sense of surrealness, actually seeing the band who’s supplying the dramatic music nearby on the grass – complete with piano, tuba, and drums – and apparently unnoticed by the woman, only makes it more so. It’s enough to make a critic wonder just what she’s gotten herself into.
