Fun to watch, like the stuff with that odd band and choir trio, but also deals with serious topics like climate change and who has power and stuff.

p.s.-ecoterrorism is still bad and illegal (and people can get hurt/lose jobs/etc), but oh did I want to cheer her on....

My top film of the Portland International Film Festival 2019

A delightful, tongue-in-cheek, light, cultural drama story with a message! Beautiful Icelandic scenery!
A fascinating way to tell the story! It's quite unique and artsy in some ways, such as the addition of an Instrumental ensemble and the Ukrainian song scenes, which added a wonderful balance to the story! I got to really enjoy these surprises!

I loved the subtle humour and comedic scenes, esp involving the Spanish-speaking Tourist in Iceland! Poor guy! ;) Hilarious! And the hunting for the drone! Many of us dreamed doing the same, probably! Hehe :))

I definitely recommend this movie! Superbly done!

Very moving and thought provoking.

I'm not sure who would like it or who I would recommend it to... and yet, I loved it. However, it's very important to see a movie like this without any foreknowledge, so if someone has already told you much about it... try to wait a year or two before seeing it.

I really liked this quirky, timely film. Fascinated with the scenery, the music the the subject matter. Thankfully, the subtitles were easy to follow. A bit strange at first, so glad I stuck with it. I'd love to have a Cd of the choir.

We showed this movie for Film Night here at the library and it did not disappoint. I LOVED it! I was so impressed and intrigued by the use of music! Can't wait to see it again!

This is a lovely, sad, quirky cute film. It's a perfect film about the realities of fighting against climate change, big business and world government as one woman in Iceland attempts to make a difference. I loved it.

This movie combines humor and serious environmental concerns. Viewers see the beautiful countryside in Iceland and are gifted a unique soundtrack. Complex issues are faced head on, making this a great movie to discuss with others.
