            Writer/director Grmur Hkonarsons eagerly-anticipated follow up to the worldwide hit Rams is a rousing, David-and-Goliath comedy about a farmers wife who steps up to take on the corrupt local co-op in her remote Icelandic valley. Dairy farmers Inga (Arnds Hrnn Egilsdttir) and her ...husband Reynir (Hinrik lafsson), love each other deeply, but are trapped theyre in debt, theyre working 24/7 and havent had a vacation in years. Inga has always been frustrated by the unquestioned commitment Reynir has to the local co-operative, unable to see the logic in them holding a monopoly over the milk they produce (nor in being forced to pay considerably more for groceries and supplies than what those items cost online or in Reykjavik). So after disaster strikes, and the plucky Inga is forced to try and make it on her own, she launches a social media campaign to bring attention to the organisations exploitative practices. Unfortunately, everyone else in the community is dependent on its economic heft, and Ingas quest soon makes her the target of a ruthless adversary. Reminiscent of underdog fables such as Woman At War and Three Billboards, and driven by Egilsdttir's commanding and moving performance (as well as a fine turn from Rams star Sigurur Sigurjnsson as the co-op's self-assured director), Hkonarsons humanistic and charming film deftly melds wry humour and Icelandic gruffness to deliver an crowd-pleasing tale of a woman whos simply had enough, and decides to try to live life on her own terms.

            A sensational trove. A great discovery. A cinematographic tour through 4 stunning exhibitions. After 70 years from the Hitlers declaration of war to degenerate art, an event film that reveals secrets of the Fuhrer treasure. Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and Chagall: paintings hidden, ...looted and condemned finally come to light to reveal the Nazi obsession for art on the big screen. Starting from the incredible Gurlitt case and of his massive collection, the true story of masterpieces persecutes and banned during the 20th century. Introduced and narrated by Toni Servillo, winner of 2 European Film Awards and protagonist of The Great Beauty, Best Foreign Film at the 86th Academy Award. 80 years have passed since the Nazi Regime placed a definite ban on so-called degenerate art, considered cosmopolitan and communist. In 1937 an exhibition was held publically branding and stigmatizing it, at the same time, at Hitlers behest, the confiscation began of ancient and classic works of art, of masterpieces that were to occupy those spaces imagined to be the Louvre of Linz. This documentary tells many stories. And all of them revolve around three big exhibitions, the starting point for a series of human and artistic narratives.
