Daisy Diamond : Danish director Simon Staho shows a very bad side of cinema where true talent is ignored.
16 October 2013 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

Director Simon Staho's Danish film "Daily Diamond" is one film whose meaning can be easily summed up in a single, long sentence. However, as it talks about things which mean a lot in our daily lives, the issues it raises and their repercussions on people would be felt for a very long time. Although it has a small baby girl as one of its protagonists, it is not at all a family film due to its excessive reliance on nude scenes and violence which border on a mild form of quasi perverse pornography. Actress Noomi Rapace is perfect in her role of a Swedish girl who does not crack in a harsh Danish cinema industry where casting couch is rampant and most people associated with cinema business offer free advice while revealing their philosophical thoughts about acting business. Their hypocrisy is revealed when it transpires that these are the very people who don't hesitate in giving "share my bed if you want a role of your life" type invitations to struggling actors. The film does not stop at all in asking a pertinent question: which 'real actor' can survive in a harsh cinematographic milieu where talent takes a back seat ? As far as watching this film is concerned, there is a minor warning for viewers who are working mothers. Although this film depicts the tragic plight and problems of a working mother, it fails to offer a plausible solution.This leads us to ask whether it is ethical to have a child when the mother is not at all in a position to raise it. Lastly, the real star of this film is a 4 month old baby girl whose life is snuffed out too soon by her mother who would like to make it big in the phony world of cinema.
