Nikolaj Lie Kaas,
In the 16th century in the Cévennes, a horse dealer by the name of Michael Kohlhaas leads a happy family life. When a lord treats him unjustly, he raises an army and puts the country to fire and sword in order to have his rights restored.
Romantic drama: the story of Christoffer and Maja's trip to the city of Prague - a beautiful, aging city, but also a city choked by a rigid and dated eastern-block mentality. PRAG is the story of a distant, ever-absent father who, even after passing away, traumatizes all who have known him. And PRAG is the story of a marriage on the verge of collapse, in which Christoffer wants one thing and Maja another. A story of an old love, constantly transformed; at once, rooted, fragile, vulnerable, forgotten and rediscovered. A marriage where secrets, one after the other, come bursting out of the closet.

..couple of slight rewrites and it goes up a rating point..
As he is now there's no woman going to make this man happy.. and it's pretty much a given that a very personable, attractive, and mostly unhappy woman might realistically seek companionship with another man. Especially when considering the husband's distant, frigid personality. Did he want out?.. at times acting like he's deliberately trying to sabotage the relationship. Maybe he is.. not looking all too upset upon learning of her extended infidelity. And he has numerous opportunities here to try and win her back.. but when they talk about what they are going to do.. he ignores the question completely quickly changing the subject. Her hanging in there for 13+ years with him would have to be considered some kinda record. He had to have changed from their early years together into someone no one would now knowingly choose to be with, otherwise why would she have signed on long-term with him in the first place. The story otherwise mostly kinda works on its own. Except for the pregnant thing, that just came off a bit too convenient and contrived (a quick deliberate out for him), and actually detracted from the overall effect of the movie.. making the eventual outcome too easy. All in all though, it is a fairly worthwhile film, with solid lead performances, more notably her's (his character gets somewhat overplayed).
