The spirit of Elia Kazan lives on in this tough community drama from Icelandic film-maker Grímur Hákonarson...

If The County were just a beautifully judged account of one woman drawing a line in the snow, that much would be welcome. But there is more to chew on here - the logic of globalism, the lure of protectionism. All that and Stjórnin too.

"The County" is full of feisty female energy and imagery, and sprinkled with rousing "you go girl!" comic moments.

[Inga is] performed with excellence by the actress Arndís Hrönn Egilsdóttir. [Full review in Spanish]

It looks astonishing, still camerawork that allows these scenes to play out in a theatrical yet deadpan way...
