Storyline

Katarina is 20 years old. With a troubled past in a dreary suburb, her life seems to be already set in stone - until she discovers music. Everything changes when she hears a performance of Mozart's Requiem at the Gothenburg Concert Hall that sends her reeling and opens up a beautiful new world. She feels that she has to change her life and get as far away from her ugly reality as possible. But the path she has to follow proves a treacherous one, filled with lies, betrayal and a dangerous liaison with the married conductor Adam. Yet Katarina is ready to do anything to gain her new identity. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, Katarina goes to the library and asks for "Rachmaninoff's piano concerto, with Richter." She finds a seat and plays the CD. The audio is not Rachmaninoff though, but Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A major (K. 622). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Katarina: [wearing headphones listening to Mozart] We don't have all the time in the world. You shouldn't waste life, so the only thing that happens is that your pussy gets slack. The first time I heard Mozart was on YouTube. That's nearly a year ago. I was searching for some stupid clip, and suddenly I was captivated - by the music. Since then, they can't touch me. They can take their cocks and their ugly lives and say what they want. I don't care. I'm not there anymore. In some bloody way ...

Fabulous acting by Alicia Vikander
28 December 2015 | by (Brussels) – See all my reviews

Well, the script might raise some questions at some points but this doesn't really matter. The intensity, the power and credibility of Alicia Vikanders' performance in this movie blows away the story lines. The sober direction of the movie underlines her performance. One of the best performances I've seen in the last years.

The script is touching many subjects such as poverty, coming-to-age and gender issues, without digging deep in any of them. It is the acting which gives the depth of the emotion to this movie. When she is asked to dance in front of the conductor in a most humiliating way, the scene is so painful that the buildup to the climax feels almost logical emotionally. This is not about ethics, but during the movie, you get dragged into the wild emotions of Katarina. And this is to me the essence of the movie: a young wild women fighting her way through a very troubled life. I don't think the director intends to ask our approval or even sympathy, but wants us to take a journey on the emotional roller-coaster of Katarina, so brilliantly performed by Alicia Vikander. Simply breathtaking.
