Most of the movie is a widowed woman tending to her farm in Iceland; seems the farmers belong to a local CO-OP that, not clearly explained, seems to control farmer & community economy (prices, raw materials, selling of farm products like milk) to some little dissatisfaction (also not clearly explained). Ending lacked believability. Didn’t really get a sense of farm life. Most CO-OPs are well run, but true that some put pursuing money foremost.
I have seen some reviewers expecting this to be a comedy and I was quite surprised. Maybe this is due to a trailer or marketing.
I saw this on at a local film festival and had no prior knowledge of it, so I wasn’t expecting any particular genre. Simply put, without that comedic expectation, this movie is excellent, well acted and filmed, with some fantastic sound design and music (and suspense-filled silence too)
The story, revolving around Inga’s battle against corruption by a certain company in her country, is well paced, with some very well placed humour and suspense. All the other characters are great too. Most importantly, all of them are believable. None feel fake or over-acted or badly written.
Importantly to me, though, the main character, Inga… isn’t a woman for the sake of it. This isn’t a feminist focused movie trying to make Inga out to be ‘powerful’ or ‘brave’ or anything like that. She’s portrayed as a normal human being who falls on hard times and is sick of it. This just makes her all the more lovable!
Overall an excellent movie. Go watch it.
